Ursus

Tignes, France

Unable to transport his guests to the forest, chef Clément Bouvier has brought the forest to them with his Ursus dining room, which features 390 real fir trees, a leafy canopy ceiling, gently undulating carpets, tables made of walnut wood and soft lighting. Named after the last breed of brown bear to have been seen in the Savoie – whose likeness graces the crockery – the 45-cover restaurant celebrates the region’s bountiful natural larder in expertly executed, whimsically presented (think stones, logs and moss) dishes. The 100% Savoyarde cheese trolley and superb local wines are worth lingering over.
