Albert 1er | Chamonix

Luxury (two Michelin star) dining in Chamonix, France at Restaurante Albert 1er was one for the books. Yes, it was a splurge in comparison to your standard meal in Cham, but for a michelin starred experience, all of it simply exceptional, the six of us who ventured here considered it a reasonable one. (It was 156 euros each, and this included two bottles of wine, one was a magnum bottle.) All of us would highly recommend it.

 Robert Blanc green asparagus with black truffle, green herb pasta and parmesan
Foie Gras de Canard two ways | sautĂ©ed with mango et passion fruit caramel (pictured) | “ballotine” with quince jelly and apple chutney (unpictured)
Grilled Saint-Jacques scallops with a fennel and green apple slaw
"Perle de la Dombes" duck lacquered in an orange crust, with stewed leg, almond, coriander and lemon preserve, and chickpea fritters.
Cheese Trolley | choice of fresh and mature French and Italian cheeses
Dessert Trolley | pastries, cakes, homemade sorbets and ice cream
Warm green Charteruse soufflé with homemade Chartreuse ice cream
(Unbelievable. Hands down the best souffle I have ever tasted.) 
Petit Fours, chocolates and caramels

  3. What an amazing experience! those desserts look to die for! Definitely pricey, but when you include that much wine - its not horrible ;)

  4. That duck! Wow. What an experience!

  5. Is there anything better than a cheese plate?
