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

    Weird tension between the wait staff. Not a happy bunch, and it shows in the service.

    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

    Ничего не могу сказать о заведении, но однажды напоил здесь двух несовершеннолетних (по американским законам) девушек, которые в последствии предлагали мне секс втроем. Вердикт: прекрасное место.

    Recipe for the perfect brunch. Step 1: come here with a friend or three. 2: order the rosti Norwegian and the croque monsieur, with a fried egg on top. 3: splitty split your way to Swiss heaven.

    Through the kitchen of this stylish Austrian eatery in Soho is a hidden room. Mimicking an Apres bar in the alps, fondue and raclette are served during the colder months. 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.
