Jacotte Brazier, dont la grand-mère Eugénie fut la première femme à obtenir, en 1933 (puis en 1951), trois étoiles au Michelin, a annoncé la vente de son restaurant "La mère Brazier" de la rue Royale à Lyon, une adresse incontournable du monde politique et économique lyonnais.
La guide Michelin accorder des étoiles au restaurants, un, deux or trois. Ils sont des objets de tant de convoitise.

Eugénie Brazier was the first woman  to obtain three Michelin stars in 1933 (and again in 1951). The Michelin Guide awards restaurants between one and three stars, and they are coveted. Her granddaughter, Jacotte Brazier, has just announced the sale of the family restaurant "La mère Brazier" on Royale Street in Lyon, a very important address in Lyon's world of politics and economics.
