We had the pleasure of joining in on a preview lunch as the Fairmont Le Montreux-Palace welcomes guest chef Reto Mathis from St. Moritz all this week. There was black truffle pizza, there was a polenta truffle cappuccino, there were beef filets and St. Jacques scallops, and chestnut mousse with poached fig and latte di fiora ice cream. Needless to say, we were in culinary heaven.
The great news is, you can still reserve a spot to sample Chef Mathis’ menu this week. Both lunch and dinner offerings are available, but space is limited! The other wonderful part is, once Chef Mathis leaves, the party isn’t over–the Fairmont Le Montreux-Palace has opened up a new afterwork/apéro bar for the holiday season called l’Après Ski and it.is.spectacular.
They’ve transformed MP’s terrace and have brought the Alpine experience to the Riviera; heavy furs line the seats while rough cut wooden tables don large cubicle dice menus–a playful touch amongst the classical and old-world luxury of the hotel. Every evening except for Sunday, you’ll have the chance to let loose and cozy up at l’Après Ski. And on Thursdays-Saturdays a live DJ will ensure the beat it just right as you drink a cocktail (or two) and dive into a mouth-watering truffle pizza.
You know where we’ll be in the evenings this holiday season 😉
