Albert 1er

Chamonix, France

Any establishment still going strong in the hands of the fifth generation of the same family must be doing something right. Witness Hôtel Hameau Albert 1er, whose Michelin two-star restaurant offers destination dining at the foot of Mont Blanc. Head chef Damien Leveau – predecessor Pierre Maillet’s right-hand man from 2014-2018 – sends out technically brilliant Piedmont and Liguria-inspired dishes enhanced by herbs from the well-stocked kitchen garden. Beautifully orchestrated amuse-bouche, standout breads with artisan butters, a superb alpine cheese selection, artful desserts and petits fours, as well as a vast wine cellar containing some 19,000 bottles, complete the picture.
