Get ready to have a cheese orgy for the winter! A new restaurant with all-you-can-eat raclette is opening its doors in Paris!
Raclette is one of the rare good news that accompanies the return of winter. This essential dish is often unanimous. In its most luxurious version, it combines many of the treasures of French gastronomy. Delicious cheeses, artisanal charcuterie, potatoes and a few other vegetables sometimes: the base is simple! Accompanied (in moderation) by a good wine, raclette is the convivial winter dish par excellence. You can customize it almost endlessly. Everyone has their little finds and secrets to make raclette even more unique! A small downside however: a raclette evening, it perfumes the house permanently! From then on, feasting on melted cheeses at the restaurant can take on its full meaning. If, in addition, you are told that an all-you-can-eat formula allows you to taste various finely selected varieties, it’s paradise, isn’t it?
Raclette from every angle!
Raclette is in the spotlight in the new Monbleu restaurant which is opening rue du Faubourg Montmartre, in the 9th arrondissement. These cheese specialists are not at their first attempt. Monbleu Le Comptoir had already carved out a solid reputation with all lovers of cheese and wine. A selection of around 150 references, made by a best worker in France, is the promise of incomparable flavors. The new address will give pride of place to raclette! In addition, you will also find a real cheese dairy on site with a choice that is just as qualitative as in the first brand. For an even more gourmet moment, the restaurant opens its doors to you with a menu to make all gourmets salivate. Alongside the cheeses, to be discovered in their most raw or cooked form, you can also enjoy a fine list of wines and craft beers.
The raclette will be available through three formulas. You will have the choice between: vegetarian raclette, traditional raclette (without assorted meats or vegetables) or the ultimate charcuterie raclette. The prices remain very reasonable, ranging from 25 to 32 euros depending on the option chosen. This is the perfect opportunity to be tempted by more unexpected combinations of tastes. The classic raclette is obviously always a delight. However, experimenting with new flavors can also be a revelation. At Monbleu, the plain raclette therefore rubs shoulders with more unexpected versions such as the one with Espelette pepper or truffle. Impossible then not to find something to treat you! You will rediscover the joys of raclette with this new address. If you still prefer to enjoy it at home, no worries. The cheese dairy offers take-out or delivery versions for all your cheese cravings!
