Despite its proximity to the lake, there's neither a terrace nor a view at Le Bocca, and charming owner/chef Claude Frôté wants it that way: customers should come to this spot for his innovative food. Set just north of Neuchâtel, this restaurant offers an array of menus in its brasserie and main dining room. If you're a fan of organ meats such as tripe—long popular in Neuchâtel—you can eat for a lot less: Le Bocca's contemporary takes on these traditional dishes
only run you 32 SF to 44 SF. Hand in hand with the fine food (past delights have included foie gras with passion fruit or beef filet with olives and pistachios) is a great wine list with 25,000 bottles in stock.
