Be transported to the heart of Switzerland’s french-speaking region at The Lavaux, a wine & fondue bar in the West Village. Sharing the fabulous traditions of Swiss culinary and wine with NYC, explore the fruits of Lavaux’s terroir and taste signature flavors of the sunny, mountainous region’s wine and cheese.
Deemed a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Lavaux 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 entrees, 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 select from three board options or decide to create their own! Choose between luxury charcuteries like Wild boar lonza, Prosciutto di Parma, Duck Prosciutto and cheeses such as Truffle brie, Emmentaler, and Screamer.
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.
