My list of all times favorite restaurants in Paris had to start with this one. If you want to experience something really French, be out of time for a moment, this is definitely your place. When passing through the door, you’ll be entering a tiny mountain chalet right in the middle of Montmartre.
What’s on the menu? Cheese, cheese and more cheese
It’s serving typical Savoyard food. If you need a hint Savoie is a French region situated on the Swiss and Italian border, right in the middle of the Alps. We’re talking about winter food here, the one you enjoy after a day skiing
Most of the specialties are for sharing. You may already know ‘fondue Savoyarde’. It’s a mix of Swiss cheeses melted on a pot placed over a small burner right on your table. You’ll dip pieces of bread in the cheese and enjoy the flavor.
Now, if only cheese and bread don’t appeal you much for a dinner, don’t worry they have other options. When ordering Raclette and Reblochonade, you’ll get typical Savoyard cooked pork meat along with potatoes and a big piece of cheese to melt (Raclette or Reblochon) on a grill.
If you’d rather have your own plate, you should try a great typical dish called Tartiflette. It’s made with potatoes, bacon, Reblochon cheese and a white wine sauce…amazing!
If you still have space for dessert, you’ll be able to enjoy a great in season fruits chocolate fondue among other typical Savoyard sweets.
The braves will end by a Grolle… The restaurant got his name from a regional drink made with coffee, strong alcohol and orange zests served warm.
Most main dishes between 18€ and 22€. Booking advised.
