The Mark Chalet, an Alpine haven that sprouted up on the intersection of 77th and Madison Avenue, is the chicest après-shopping destination this winter. Warm up with a special menu of Swiss classics by Jean-Georges Vongerichten at this luxurious pop-up restaurant with wood paneling and fur drapes.
Salmon roe, horseradish, crispy celeriac, and potato rösti are served with slow-baked Arctic char, delicate squash and escarole salad, and veal Zurichoise with spätzle. A pot of melted Gruyère and Vacherin cheese, sourdough bread, broccoli, potato, apple, pear, and pickled cauliflower for soaking and stabbing is the centerpiece of this fondue feast.
And, of course, they have a Mont Blanc cake, which we would purchase shares in, to end things pleasantly sweetly.
Hot toddies and mulled wine—see you there?
