Sip wine like you’re in the Swiss Alps!
Be transported to the heart of Switzerland’s french-speaking region at The Lauvaux, a wine & fondue bar in the West Village. Sharing the fabulous traditions of Swiss culinary and wine with NYC, explore the fruits of Lauvaux’s terroir and taste signature flavors of the sunny, mountainous region’s wine and cheese.
Deemed a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Lauvaux produces some of the world’s best wine, as the region consists of hundreds of hectares of vineyards.
Unfamiliar with Swiss wines? Learn everything you need to know from the experienced staff as you taste direct imports from Swiss winemakers. Be sure to try Chasselas, a common Swiss white grape that gets its unique taste from being “immersed in the soil,” and take advantage of Happy Hour deals from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. with $5 off any glass!
For bites, choose anything from boards to brunch, but don’t forget to order the fondue! Indulge in ooey gooey Gruyère, Vacherin, or Val de Bagnes for an unforgettable tasting experience.
Diners can choose from three board options and brunch items vary from sweet mousse au chocolat to savory le croque Juliette.
Oh yea, and did we mention, you can enjoy all of this inside a 1970s refurbished Swiss Gondola? Sit in the charming intimate spot, and feel as though you’ve swapped the city for the Swiss Alps.
