The great feast in the stars
So, yes, Manigod is far away. And the Maison des bois even further, at the top of a hill that is reached by a road badly cleared in winter. So yes, a meal with Marc Veyrat is expensive. Count 395 euros for the evening menu baptized, in all modesty, as the good man knows how to do.
“The great feast in the stars”. The Sunday menu, served on Sunday for lunch only, is more affordable: 295 euros. But as much for the show than for the cuisine, these are prices that stand for an exceptional meal that is offered once in a lifetime. Especially since Marc Veyrat assumes to leave again to the conquest of his stars. And already, a few weeks after its opening, its restaurant reaps two stars in the Michelin 2017. A fair grade. Giving him the three stars right away would not have been reasonable. First of all, because a sacred monster like Veyrat needs a challenge not to be bored. The hunt for the last star will therefore delight him. And also because his cuisine and indoor service, however tasty, deserve some adjustments to reach the peaks.
