In September, not all of the shops at the Grand Hôtel-Dieu will respond to the back-to-school call.
The Trolliet butcher shop indeed closed its doors a few days ago. The fridges and shelves were also emptied.
This Lyon institution was placed in compulsory liquidation by the Lyon Commercial Court on July 26, according to Grandstand of Lyon.
Trolliet had responded favorably to the bet launched by the caterer Jean-Paul Pignol to participate in the launch of the Halles du Grand Hôtel-Dieu in January 2019, which wanted to be the little sister of the famous Halles Paul-Bocuse. In addition to the butcher’s shop, the managers also offered a few tables to allow customers to directly taste the products prepared by chef Yannick Decelle, as well as braziers in the summer in the Cour Saint-Martin.
But less than four years later, Trolliet, best worker in France in 1986, must already throw in the towel. It must be said that the places are still trying to convince the people of Lyon and tourists to make it an unmissable site in the capital of the Gauls.
The historic Halles Paul-Bocuse butcher’s shop obviously remains open. It also celebrates this year its 30 years of presence in the belly of Lyon.
The GIE des Halles du Grand Hôtel-Dieu will now become a replacement for Trolliet to take over the stall that is now empty alongside the houses Cerise & Potiron, Voisin, Guyot and even Mère Richard.
