The Panoramic Mer de Glace
We can not stop the Sibuet family in such good way: after the inauguration last year of the Terminal Neige Totem in Flaine, that of Villa Marie in Saint Barth in December, we are also celebrating the opening of a superb restaurant : The Panoramic Mer de Glace. The latter, perched on the mythical site of the Montenvers, offers an incredible view on the Sea of ice and the Druses. It is reached by ski or from Chamonix, with the famous red cogwheel train of the Montenvers, a walk that is worth the shot. In a setting that, in spite of its modernity, has lost nothing of its authenticity, one feeds on traditional regional cuisine: savoyarde pot, Grand-Mère chicken cocotte or coquillettes with Beaufort. Magnificent: “Mer de Glace”, a homemade velvety vacherin, the traditional Mont Blanc with chestnut cream, or the double cream meringue, a delight! And as of next June, the Terminal Neige- Refuge du Montenvers hotel will open on this same site. A. F.-M.
