You don’t have to travel very far to enjoy some nice Savoyard specialties! For years now, raclettes, tartiflettes and other fondues have been on the menu of several restaurants in Paris, for cheese lovers’ and foodies’ greatest joy.
Among the very tasty tables, we have Les Marmottes. Nestled in the 1st arrondissement, this restaurant displays a décor inspired by mountain cabins. With large tables, exposed stone-walls, beams and wooden benches made by the manager’s cabinetmaking father, and its gigantic groundhog on its chairlift, the tone is set, and we’ll enjoy a warm and delicious moment.
At Les Marmottes, cheese addicts can choose between Savoyard and Swiss fondue, tartiflette (also available vegetarian version without bacon) or the baked Mont d’Or. But the unquestionable star of the restaurant is raclette. It’s the reason why all tables are fitted with a special heating machine to melt the impressive cheese wheel.
To satisfy and fulfill everyone’s taste, Les Marmottes restaurants provides 5 raclette cheeses coming from different producers: classic raw milk cheese, Brézain cheese (smoked with beech tree), Morbier cheese, Abondance cheese and Bleu de Gex cheese.
In addition to selected cheeses (you can change during the meal), the waiter serves potatoes and a bowl of salad and a nice and delicious plate of cold cuts (raw ham, truffled and cooked ham, Swiss dried beef, Rosette sausage).
And for very big appetite, note that raclette is …unlimited (allowable for cheese, salad and potatoes).
If you still feel hungry, don’t hesitate to order the frozen Chartreuse vacherin, a house specialty. And to digest everything, Les Marmottes restaurant has more Savoyard specialties up its sleeve with the famous Génépi or Chartreuse Verte or Jaune.
Friendliness, mountain charm, delicious cheeses make of this address a now unmissable place for lovers of Savoyard specialties!
