Le Forestier

Praise to the National Forestry Office, which handed over this superb century-old chalet to Emmanuel Renaut (Flocons de Sel, Flocons Village) and Nano Fanara (La Sauvageonne). The day we went, we skipped the refuge-like interior (old hardwood floors, a wood-fired stove, old-fashioned skis) and opted for the sunny terrace instead, and sat down to explore the menu: a respectable potato and Beaufort quiche; an Alpine hunter’s terrine; a classic cheese croûte; a rather snobby Angus steak pot-au-feu; tartiflette with runny reblochon cheese; deliciously puffed up pike quenelles with Nantua sauce and rice; before a lovely montblanc made with mascarpone, chosen over the vanilla pudding or the blueberry faisselle cheese. // A.S.

FEELING THIRSTY? Savoie reds from the Domaine des Côtes Rousses (€9 a glass) or the Domaine Fabien Trosset (€39 a bottle), an Apremont from the Blards (€34)…

PRICE: À la carte €50-69, kids’ menu €25.
