At tea time, we go through the door of the tea room "Le Georges". A chic and gourmet place just a stone's throw from the Place de l'Eglise, where you can share incredible pastries, such as the mythical Mont-Blanc and its delicious chestnut cream, blueberry tart, coffee éclair, or nun, accompanied by the rarest teas and hot chocolates, prepared here in the old-fashioned way.
The place to be after a day on the slopes? The Lodge Park Bar of course, in the heart of the village! After some wild descents we meet up with friends under the giant tepee to share a glass of mulled wine or an Apple Spice, the secret of the house, while the DJ remixes classics!
The Lodge Park, with its trendy and cosy atmosphere, looks like a chic Nordic refuge and houses an exceptional steak house. So let yourself be transported to this elegant lodge at the end of the world to savour rare meats, matured and cooked according to the rules of the art.
In this refined place adorned with wood and warm hangings, enhanced with trophies and skins, we detail, as one would leaf through a travel diary, the map and the butcher's stall which present only exceptional meats. To be more precise? Meat selected from the best farms in the world by Olivier Metzger, butcher (based in Neuilly and Rungis) for four generations and who supplies the finest French tables with his brother Franck, including the Beef Lodge. The meats are then cooked by a passionate chef, Christophe Côte (a predestined name, it seems), then presented and advised by the "bouchelier" (meat adviser) Romain Massiera, who is also in charge of the Beef Lodge.
As Olivier Metzger explains: "Exceptional meat is an animal that is well treated, well raised and well slaughtered. It must have three main qualities: tenderness, 'juiciness', with a beautiful red colour, and a good marbling (editor's note: fat microorganisms) to be melting. "And if each terroir has its own specificity, which varies according to the climate, the breed and the food of the animals, in this luxury steak house, the meats selected and matured here are selected above all for their qualities. No specific breed on the menu therefore, as Chef Christophe Cote points out, but exceptional animals. "The breed doesn't have much to do with it, I prefer to work on a product that has been selected by the butcher, then we work with breeders and slaughterhouses. "Moreover, he sometimes even accompanies Olivier Metzger to the breeders' premises or joins him at Rungis, just to see the animals or follow the maturing process. Even if the cutting and cooking work is just as essential. "Christophe is a real meat expert, he has an extraordinary love of the product, like the Sibuet family, who have a real education and an incredible love of products", says Olivier Metzger. So much so that the chef and his teams have followed training courses at the École Nationale Supérieure des Métiers de la Viande with Olivier Metzger and also work at a school in Groisy, in Haute-Savoie, where they teach students how to cut meat in the catering trade.
