A SHOWER OF STARS
The Three Valleys boasts the world’s largest concentration of star-rated establishments, mainly located in Courchevel, with 7 Michelin star-rated restaurants including the triple-crowned Le 1947, headed up by Yannick Alléno. If you’re looking to reach for the stars in Méribel, head over to sample Chef Laurent Azoulay’s creations at L’Ekrin (below).
Recommended in the 2018 Michelin guide, Le SarKara is a gastronomic dessert lounge forming part of the K2 Palace in Courchevel. A 100%-sweet restaurant, where Chef Sébastien Vauxion signs a plethora of too-good-to-resist original creations.
That’s the culinary concept developed by the Fahrenheit Courchevel in Moriond. Whether you opt for lunch out on the terrace at La Rôtisserie (image right) afternoon tea in the lounge, or a get-together around a tapas board at Le Zinc to the sound of live music, it’s the place to be for foodies and fun-lovers alike!
If you’re seeking a unique Savoie culinary experience, don’t miss Le Caveau in Courchevel Village, where you can savour a Poêlée des Alpages – tender shallots in white wine with oven-baked Reblochon cheese – or beef kebab suspended over your table from the ceiling!
Le Génépi (above) and La Saulire (below) restaurants in Courchevel both boast the Maître Restaurateur label, guaranteeing home-made dishes concocted with mainly fresh, local produce.
YUMMY AT LE YANAI!
Set between mountain and forest, Le Yanaï will be opening its doors in place of Le Plantin in Méribel this winter. Hosts Yann and Aïcha will be offering fabulous fare lunchtimes and evenings, together with DJ nights and a shuttle and valet service.
For a gourmet break at 2112 metres, forge your way through the snow to the Cave des Creux! That’s where the Glise brothers converted an old alpine cheese ripening cellar into a high-altitude brasserie. On the menu: Savoyard specialities, simple cuisine using quality produce, accompanied by a fine wine list. Enjoy by the fireplace or on the terrace with its breathtaking view of Mont Blanc!
NEW AT THE TOP
Set at a dizzy 2,300 metres, the new-look restaurant Les Crêtes now offers guests a cosy dining room complete with fireplace and stunning views over the valleys of Méribel and Saint Martin de Belleville, together with a terrace for topping up your tan…
This season, gourmets visiting Courchevel will be filled with delight upon discovering these promising new restaurants. After an adventurous day on the slopes, it’s time for some tasty delights.
ME GUSTA EL ALTIPLANO
No time to lose: make your way to K2 Altitude Hotel – L’Altiplano, to be precise. The location’s concept is unique in Courchevel, offering a tribute to the delights of Peruvian cuisine. Here, Chef Manuel Balmaceda collaborates with K2 Altitude’s Executive Chef Gatien Demczyna and invites guests on a culinary adventure. If you have already succumbed to ceviche-mania, the establishment will let you rediscover the rich gastronomic traditions of Peru. As a reference to one of the highest plains in the world, the Altiplano in the Andes, the restaurant is a fantastic journey of the senses itself.
THE LATEST TASTE OF BISTROT DU PRAZ
At the foot of the slopes, Le Bistrot du Praz has decided to revamp its restaurant terrace to make way for a new concept! Dubbed “La Petite Place” (The Small Square), the new location boasts a cosy mountain atmosphere: mushroom-shaped outdoor heaters, cushions, hot-water bottles, beautiful fabrics and more await in this exquisite après-ski nook. A gourmet break from skiing might also be on the menu: enjoy the soup of the day, succulent patisseries and fabulous hot chocolate drinks – complete with chocolate chips, spices and marshmallows. Opening from 1 to 8 p.m., this fantastic new location is also the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, a selection of cured meats and to take in the warm authentic ambiance of Le Praz village!
A CONFIDENTIAL LOCATION
Here in Courchevel, there is a place one can only access by giving “the password”. Do you know it? Then you’re in luck! Enter Le Garage; a distinctly chic establishment launched by Nils Tournier. In an atmosphere reminiscent of Jazz, the Charleston, Josephine Baker, Greta Garbo and the years of prohibition, the restaurant is a tribute to the roaring twenties, boasting a range of exquisite gourmet cuisine and an exceptional drinks menu that features gin from around the world.
