Concierge.com's insider take:
If you want to splurge, come to this hotel restaurant for renowned chef Pierre Carrier's superb cuisine and the vast 20,000-bottle wine cellar. Dinner might include pan-fried scallops with risotto and lobster sauce, or foie gras with truffled chicken rillettes. Carrier also pays his respects to traditional Piedmontese cooking (Chamonix was part of Piedmont until 1860), with dishes such as gnocchi with Alba truffles. Bay windows offer a view of Mont Blanc.
Closed May and November and every Wednesday; closed for lunch on Tuesday and Thursday.
