Little known even among locals, Domaine de la Sasse is one of Megève's more unusual gourmet experiences. Chef Dominique Méridol lives in a farmhouse in the shadow of Mont Joly, five miles from Megève. The journey there involves a 20-minute walk up a steep path from where the road ends at Le Planay (snowshoes are often necessary in winter). Not a restaurant in the traditional sense, Domaine feeds only a thousand customers per year from a menu based entirely around bison from Méridol's own herd. The meat is prepared and served in every way imaginable, starting with homemade saucisson and fresh grain bread, and accompanied by very carefully chosen wines. Go for the larger of the two set menus, which includes paper-thin shaved bison tongue and spicy tartare—specialties the likes of which you will not find elsewhere. Despite the one-meat meal, each course tastes unique. Reservations are essential, as Méridol only opens his door when at least six people have booked a table. Bring cash, and come for lunch rather than dinner.

Closed October through December.
