Fodor's Expert Review Flocons de Sel

$$$$ Megève French Fodor's Choice

Emmanuel Renaut's Flocons de Sel ("flakes of salt"), located in Leutaz, brings new meaning to the world of haute cuisine—and even with the drive out of town it's more than an excellent Megève dining option, it's a pilgrimage point. Though the extravagant ten-course tasting menu is pricey, it offers a rare experience from one of France's great three-star chefs, based on simple but carefully selected ingredients—freshwater crayfish, scallops en croute with sea salt, and roast wood pigeon are just a few of the creatively prepared specialties. The dining room is rustic-simple, allowing the food to take center stage. Surrounded by a series of chalets and much natural splendor, the establishment also offers nine exquisite guest rooms and two private chalets for crawl-away convenience.
