This beloved outpost has retained all its charm since moving to a larger space last year, including its modest, daily-changing food menu, natural-focused wine list and welcoming ambience.
From The Sommelier: “We are seeing really special wines from all over Eastern France, particularly the Savoie and outlier regions like Franche-Comté. The whites tend to be shimmering and mineral but range widely with regard to texture and flavor; the reds are bright, powerful and acidic—and great examples of light-bodied but age-worthy wines. Because of the Alps the terroirs of these regions can be myriad and seemingly impossibly varied for such a relatively small area. Near Lake Geneva you have the Allobroges with pulverized, alluvial deposits and a bit of altitude, and all the way down in Isère-Balmes Dauphinoises you get sedimentary soils and more even exposures.” —Orenda Hale, Drifters Wife
