L'Ami Fritz

8 rue des Châteaux, 5 km (3 miles) west of Obernai, Ottrott-le-Haut, 67530, France

A few miles west of Obernai, this white-shuttered, flower-bedecked, 18th-century house treats diners to fine meals and accommodates overnight guests in impeccable rooms with sleek contemporary furnishings (opt for one in the main building, not the adjacent annex). Hotel amenities include a sauna and heated outdoor pool. The restaurant (reservations essential; closed to nonguests Wednesday) is one of the region's top attractions. Here you can savor Patrick Fritz's sophisticated twists on regional specialties, including a salad of warm suckling pig, a delicate choucroute of fresh and smoked fish in beurre blanc, or beer-braised pork cheeks with spaeztle. Don't miss the fruity red wine, an Ottrott exclusive.
