The Epicurean Rendezvous
Nathalie and Nicolas have opened their Œnothèque Gourmande in Crans-Montana, together with their son Léo and Bernard & Ruth Ravet. The new venture offers a programme of excellent wines and a gourmet brasserie-inspired menu for lunchtime service, and an exclusive menu for evening service.
It’s in one of the Valais resort’s legendary spots, Le Gréni, that the couple have set up their new quarters on the shores of Lac Grenon. With its woodsy charm and chalet ambience, the place offers an idyllic setting, with cosy spaces.
Wines by the glass
Who better to treat you than Nathalie Ravet, sommelier of the year 2007 and 2015, and her husband Nicolas, trained in the best restaurants in Switzerland (Fletschorn in Saas-Fee, Boccalino in St-Blaise, Ermitage in Vufflens-le-Château).
Served at lunchtime, a gourmet brasserie-inspired menu featuring cauliflower and broccoli velouté, snacked scallops, capon supreme, Ledermann Frères cabbage sausage, fillet of beef tournedos and, what has become one of the restaurant’s specialities, baby malakoffs.
Whether from here or elsewhere, the emphasis is on quality, like the Anniviers cured meats, the Pata Negra Réserve from the Alcala brothers or the foie gras dodine from Bernard Ravet’s father.
To take away, you’ll find foie gras, Champagne, wines, jams, vinegars, spirits, etc.
In the evening, Bernard & Nicolas offer a seasonal menu, by reservation only.
Reservations are essential for the evening and recommended for lunch.
The history of the Ravet family continues in Crans-Montana. And it is always with this desire to please, to share, to offer the best to the customers that L’ŒnoWhether thèque Gourmande is positioned. In this spirit, Nathalie Ravet has selected magnificent grape varieties and unearthed rare Valaisan pearls. To discover and taste them, no less than twelve wines by the glass are offered. An incredible choice of nearly one hundred references (including sixty from the Valais) completes this already generous offer of wines by the glass.
