I had visited the Chalet last summer (see review). Whilst in Savoie I was informed that Chez Pepe Nicolas is now open during the winter. We went there for lunch on boxing days. A nice little walk on the snow from the parking nearby. We were welcomed by Happy, the baby St Bernard and Erik and his team. The surroundings with the snow are just breattaking. If the weather is good, seat on the terrasse facing the glacier and the slopes. We chose to eat inside, it was warm and cosy. The decor is just great! We started with gluwine and a platter of charcuterie from the local artisan. Some of us went for the Croziflette and the pork stew ( a traditional recipe of Savoie) and others for the Belleville croque Monsieur, the traditional bread of the croque was replaced with polenta topped with a thyme cream sauce served with a salad. Just great and filling on a cold day. For sweets I choose the platter with farcon, bluberry tart and apple fritters, some of our friends took the 1957, a sweet created by the chamberian Pastry chef Cedric Pernot. The atmosphere was great, as tables were filled by skiers stopping by for lunch. A local violonist was playing during the lunch. A great destination for winter too.
