La Marmite: The Height of Swiss Cuisine
One of the highest-end restaurants in Switzerland is also Europe’s highest-altitude dining spot: La Marmite, a modernist-style lodge set at 8,000 feet in the chic St. Moritz mountain resort of Corviglia. Fashion-conscious skiers and foodies converge here to savor the decadent culinary creations of celebrity chef Reto Mathis—which include dishes like beef carpaccio with truffles Robespierre; tuna sashimi with black truffles and salmon caviar; and the signature “Mathis Pizza,” a truffle-covered tarte flambé. Almost equal to the flavors at La Marmite are the views: large windows here look down across glittering Lake Silvaplana, and up toward the cable car to 10,000-foot Piz Nair.
