    For breakfast, go for the Rösti Norwegian. It's lox on top of a latke. It's like having Hanukkah all year round!

    Awesome fondue bar in back, but great place to grab a bite and (if it's World Cup season) catch a game.

    This is a favorite late night dinner spot for the fashionable downtown crowd. The menu is inspired by that of an après-ski chalet, with offerings such as Raclette and Fondue. Read more

    The croque monsieur (with a fried egg, so a madame!), is divinely good: lathered with creamy bechamel and super crisp. Oh, and don't miss out on the rösti, as a side if you must.
