22 Feb More Michelin Star Restaurants in Courchevel
Earlier this month, the Michelin Guide added three new stars to the already impressive collection of Michelin star restaurants in Courchevel.
3rd Star for ‘Le 1947’
Chef Yannick Alléno’s Le 1947 restaurant, located at the Cheval Blanc 5-star hotel became Courchevel’s first restaurant to be awarded 3 Michelin stars. It was the only new 3-star restaurant in the entire 2017 Michelin Guide.
This is Courchevel’s first restaurant to pick up this highest of distinctions. Le 1947 owes its name to Château Cheval Blanc’s most prestigious vintage and is the backdrop to the culinary expertise of chef Yannick Alléno, 48, who arrived in Courchevel in 2008.
Every night, the intimate Le 1947 welcomes a select number of guests to its five tables, offering them a unique gastronomic experience. The Michelin guide praises the chef’s ‘extractions’ and Savoie gastronomy. Please contact the Kaluma Travel team and we will book you a table as part of our concierge service.
Second Michelin Stars for Le Kintessence and Le Montgomerie
Le Kintessence at the 5* K2 Hotel, managed by chef Jean-Rémi Caillon, and Le Montgomerie at the K2 Altitude 5-star hotel, with chef Gatien Demczyna, were both awarded a second Michelin star.
Le Kintessence was praised for the quality of its produce, the creativity of its cuisine and the level of service in the restaurant, which now bears two Michelin stars. In this intimate venue, chef Jean-Rémi Caillon has developed elegant, inspired cuisine that uses seasonal produce selected with the greatest of care.
Le Montgomerie was named after the British surveyor who christened K2 – the second highest mountain in the world – in 1856. It is the restaurant at the K2 Altitude hotel where chef Gatien Demczyna and pastry chef Sébastien Vauxion concoct their most wonderful creations.
