Pictures of them adorn the restaurant.... More

Michel, a former French skier and coach to great American skiers, has been the owner for many years in this established place. There is a bar/dining area in the upper part and the larger dining room below. Good bar and drinks, and food.

The cuisine is CONSISTANTLY fabulous. You can get authentic french cuisine from all regions of france. My favorite is the quenelle. A fish mousse/dumpling with crawfish sauce. Also the steaks are perfection....and the best chicken in town 👍
