There is good news for ‘foodies’ visiting the French resort of Les Deux Alpes this season.
Fabien Poirot, the chef who earned the resort’s first Michelin star when he was working at the 4* Chalet Mounier, has opened a new restaurant in the village called Chamois Lodge.
The building was originally an old hotel on the Avenue de la Muzelle called Le Chamois, but Fabien and his wife Aurelie have done a great job transforming the basement into an attractive and cosy dining area.
The two complement each other perfectly with Fabien producing amazing dishes and Aurelie, who was brought up in the Beaujolais wine region, acting as sommelier.
They already have experience of running their own place having previously set up Le Raisin d’Ours in Les Deux Alpes.
But in the new Chamois Lodge they are also offering hotel accommodation after renovating the bedrooms above the restaurant.
