When a bowl of leafy greens takes its moniker from a world capital of gastronomy — Lyon, France — it’s sure to be substantial. The Lyonnaise Salad at Andre’s Bistro & Bar lives up to the reputation with epicurean aplomb … and lots of lardons. Crispy chunks of pork belly are topped with light, snappy frisée endive and a soft-poached egg. A zingy warm sherry vinaigrette brings everything together. Just puncture the egg, swirl the ooey-gooey yolk around, and devour everything with Gallic gusto. A crusty baguette with salted butter comes on the side, as does a charming tray of cornichons and pickled onions with Dijon mustard. You can call it a bacon ’n’ egg salade if you want; we won’t tell the Académie Française.
