Chesa Veglia, St. Moritz
Tel: 41 81 837 28 00
Concierge.com's insider take:
A satellite of the Badrutt's Palace Hotel complex, Chesa Veglia is a 1658 chalet farmhouse hideaway a few minutes' stroll from the central behemoth. It consists of three restaurants in a labyrinth of rooms full of ancient beams and decorated with alpine eclectica. The Patrizier Stuben dining room serves Swiss and international dishes (on a terrace in the summertime). The laid-back Heuboden is a pizzeria and pasta joint. The highlight is Chadafö, an elegant alpine room which concentrates on French cuisine and grilled meats with a backdrop of tinkling piano music. Rack of lamb cooked with fresh local herbs is a specialty here. Of course, it wouldn't be St. Moritz (or Badrutt's) if there weren't a fourth dining room, Club Privé, operated strictly as a private club and open only to appointed lifetime members.
Open daily 6 to 11 pm, late June through mid-September and early December through early April.
