La Marmotte Restaurant Review

: Occupying a former ice house, La Marmotte offers a fine style of provincial French cuisine (with wines to match). The interior of the small brick building, adorned with wooden beams, hanging baskets and a 12-person chef's table, exudes the ambience of a typical auberge. Though the menu changes with the microseasons, appetizers may include truffled, curried mussel chowder or seared scallops with cauliflower, capers and raisins. As for entrées, classics like steak au poivre alternate with such creations as bee pollen-dusted mahi mahi in sage-black garlic sauce over couscous. And come dessert, molten chocolate cake never loses its luster. During the summer, dine under blue or star-studded skies on one of the patios affording spectacular mountain views.
