Restaurant A la Chaume de mon Père

Nestled between a lake and the Vosges mountains, lies restaurant A la Chaume de mon Père. This charming gourmet dining spot is surrounded by tranquillity and nature, yet merely a stone's throw from downtown Gérardmer. It’s the perfect place to indulge in traditional French cuisine, accompanied by a beautiful vista that becomes even more romantic at sunset. In the kitchen, owner and chef Aurélien Michel prepares authentic homemade dishes that are refined, well-executed, and extremely delicious.

As a young boy, chef Aurélien Michel already had a passion for French cuisine. While still in high school, he started working at culinary events at the age of 15. And it didn’t take long until he fell in love with food catering.

A la Chaume de mon Père’s cuisine

At restaurant A la Chaume de mon Père, chef Aurélien Michel presents an array of excellent seasonal specialties and local flavours. Expect dishes such as low-temperature-cooked pigeon with bluets from the Vosges, Munster in a cromesquis of hazelnut, and an emulsion of potato and Munster. Another house special is arctic char confit with garlic and hazelnut butter. For lunch, you can order the 4-course Instinct menu. For dinner, the restaurant offers a 3-, 4-, 6- or 8- course surprise menu (“Coeur des Vosges”). If you’re not much of a meat-eater, you can opt for the chef’s tasty vegetarian or vegan plate. And for the little ones, there’s a children’s menu.
