What's interesting is that all this time, the menu has not changed. This is the place to go for classical French where decades of refinement goes into the dishes. We had a course (the Truffle Soup) created in 1975 specifically for the French President. In essence, the restaurant has become a museum and a collection of Paul Bocuse's signature creations over the decades. Although we didn't get to meet Chef Bocuse, he did provide us a personalized signed menu. His contributions to the culinary world are priceless, especially when he started the Bocuse d'Or competition in 1987, which is like the Olympic games of cooking.

Made it to the mecca of French gastronomy cuisine - the legendary Paul Bocuse restaurant L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges just north of Lyon. Now 90 years old, Chef Bocuse lives above the restaurant and has long retired from actively overseeing the kitchen. He first earned 3 Michelin Stars back in 1965 and has maintained that ever since, which makes it the longest consecutive running 3* restaurant in history. Coming here is a pilgrimage all serious foodies should consider. It's like being transported back in time with the classic decorations and extravagance found in fine dining.
