Located in the Old Town near La Croix-Rousse, close to the Quais and the Opera, in the 1st district of Lyon

La Mère Brazier was an internationally renowned institution in Lyon. Founded by Eugénie Brazier in 1921, an illiterate country girl who would be awarded three Michelin stars, La Mère Brazier was forced to close in 2007 because her daughter Jacotte struggled to maintain the standard. Mathieu Viannay bought it and opened in 2008. Following extensive renovation under the direction of interior designer Alain Vavro, treasures including mosaics and Art Deco frescoes were uncovered under the layers of paint. Minimalist, modern decoration gives the interior great originality and style. A succession of function rooms on various levels makes the venue even more mysterious, with understated furniture and crockery adding the final touch. Mathieu Viannay is ably assisted by a smart and discrete team. This is a fine gourmet establishment that delights gastronomes and epicures and indeed everyone whose dream is to celebrate an event at La Mère Brazier once in their life!

A fresh take on gourmet cuisine

In the kitchen, Mathieu Viannay, "Meilleur ouvrier de France" in 2004 and holder of two Michelin stars, is a creative and ambitious chef. He is seconded by Christophe Hubert and together they form a fine team. Traditional recipes are refreshed and reworked, starting with the famous volaille de Bresse Demi-Deuil entièrement truffée sous la peau striking the perfect chord, pomme de terre tiède au caviar d’Aquitaine, hareng et pousse pied crème aigrelette, ris de veau en pomme à la grenobloise, petits pois aux morilles... The desserts are not to be outdone with fameux Paris-Brest, glace noisettes caramélisées, pralin and panna cotta au café pur arabica, granité et café liegeois. What more can be said other than Mathieu Viannay is an inspired magician who casts a spell with his cuisine and makes a significant contribution to promoting French gastronomy around the world.

Mathieu Viannay - Chef of the Restaurant La Mère Brazier - Mathieu Viannay

Chef Mathieu Viannay Restaurant La Mère Brazier - Mathieu Viannay

"The dishes that appeal to me most are often the most instinctive." Mathieu Viannay is a creative, demanding chef who has remained unpretentious and cooks with his heart.

He passed his baccalaureate and then a vocational training certificate (CAP) in cooking. It’s an unusual route for an eager and unconventional man.

As a fan of classic cuisine for our times, he works hard to create recipes, adjusting the flavours and going back to the drawing board if the combination isn’t right in order to attain perfection, right down to the presentation. It’s an art in itself!

2004 Meilleur Ouvrier de France
2005 First Michelin star
2009 Second Michelin star

The handsome and brooding Mathieu Viannay has an excellent record. He likes to woe customers with surprisingly tasty and flavoursome cuisine.

He recreates the tastes and flavours of his childhood, like pâté en croûte and the famous Paris-Brest. We’re a million miles from molecular cuisine and all the better for it.

    Etre attablé dans un salon à part. Il s'agissait d'un dîner d'affaire, c'était très adéquat. La cuisine était délicieuse.
