food/news

Those still mourning the shuttering of Upper East Side watering hole La Goulue will find a little relief in Lyon, a French eatery opening Wednesday from former Goulue partner François Latapie and real estate whiz Penny Bradley.

Location: The old Cafe Bruxelles space on Greenwich Avenue at West 13th Street.

Atmosphere: The space, which seats fewer than 100, was designed by interior gurus du jour Roman and Williams — think old maps and blackboards with magnetic letters.

Food: Updated bouchon fare such as chicken quenelles and lamb shank with white-bean stew and merguez sausage. Chef Chris Leahy comes from BLT Prime.

Drink: Cocktails, French and American wines

Vitals: 118 Greenwich Avenue, 212-242-5966; lyonnyc.com
