Bar Lyon opens in south Boston


A restaurant serving eastern France cuisine debuts Friday, September 14 in Boston’s South End. The aptly named Bar Lyon (1750 Washington St.) is inspired by caps de Lyon, serving dishes such as duck confit, grilled oysters and foie gras. Le Bar Lyon joins the Columbus Hospitality Group, which operates eight other establishments in the region, including Mistral and Sorellina.

The Lyon bar offers dishes from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. Chef and owner Jamie Mammano and executive chef Cameron Cieslak oversee the menu, which includes soft cooked omelets, roast chicken, poached monkfish with Maine lobster and clams, salmon tartare and steamed mussels. There are also a few items dubbed “Lyon classics”, including a seasoned white cheese called brain of canut, a curly salad with smoked bacon, and a Lyonnaise crusted terrine. As for drinks, the Bar Lyon offers a selection of French wines, as well as beer, cider and cocktails.

The restaurant offers a warm atmosphere design courtesy of Donna Jordan of Jordan Interior Designs. There are wooden table tops, plush cubicles, and braided tile flooring, in addition to a vintage chandelier. Pat Sharkey of Sharkey Design Company was the architect of the project.

Le Bar Lyon does not take reservations, operating only on site. With 48 seats in the dining room and 12 in the bar, the dining room opens 7 days a week at 5 p.m., remaining open until 11 p.m. Monday to Thursday, until 11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and until 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. The bar is open from 4:30 p.m. to midnight Monday to Saturday and from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Sunday.
