Inside this Haut-Doubs chalet dating back to 1684 and located at over 1,000 meters above sea level, chef-proprietor Olivier Guazzetti’s restaurant is never not full. Which is to be expected, given how very comforting the all-wooden dining room is. Much like the cuisine: the day we went for lunch, it was a deliciously runny tartine topped with melted Morbier cheese aged in Arbois wine; or a baked egg with cancoillotte cheese; Perdrounette – plump potatoes, sautéed onions, bacon from the Haut-Doubs and good grivois (a soft cow’s milk cheese); or a delectable Comté fondue (for two). Another mouthwatering option are the meats cooked over a wood fire: Charolais ribeye steak, rump steak or dry-aged prime rib, local ham…. For dessert, there’s a light and creamy chocolate mousse, or a delightful iced nougatine. // Sophie Fonfek
