Lyon is regarded as a food mecca for those seeking out traditional and rustic French cuisine. As with any urban city, there is always a high possibility of being fonted. What is fonted you say? Well, it’s a self-invented term: this verb, in the past tense, is used when someone has paid too much money after being lured into an eating establishment by classy font on a sign or a visually appealing interior that gives a false impression that the food is good as well.
So do your research and get reservations to avoid it!
