Perched on the rooftop of the Tassin-la-Demi-Lune building on the outskirts of Lyon, Daddy Poule pays tribute to poultry, cooked in many ways by chef Philippe Gauvreau. The inside of the restaurant extends the metaphor by providing clear wooden tables, which are very similar to the roof of a henhouse. Just like the name suggests ("poule" meaning hen in French, and riffing on "Daddy cool"), puns are a favourite here. On the menu for instance, you can order "cock'tails", the piña colada becomes a "Mère Poule" (French for "overprotective mother") and a margarita an "Acapouleco".
When it comes to the food, all things chicken come in various forms: in a wrap, in supreme sauce, as slow-cooked thighs with a lemon-honey juice… Eggs are prepared the "p'tit gone" way (local slang for "kid"), soft-boiled with a tomato purée. When night falls, take a seat on the wooden terrace filled with plants and listen to local bands. Before heading back home, you can also enjoy the custom photo booth using a "hen" filter to keep an original souvenir from your experience.
