The fun of cook-your-own French Alps food draws a full house most nights to Le Chalet d'Avron, one of the most popular restaurants around Place de la Nation in central Paris. Rustic snowshoes, skis, ham hocks, guns and flasks hang on cheery yellow walls in a ski chalet-style escape from capital city formality. A very sociable place, Le Chalet d'Avron specialises in Savoyard food – hearty made-for-sharing dishes that warm the bones after a day on the mountains. Open a bottle of red and join animated groups of friends having fun pottering with a fondue or melting fresh cheese and grilling meat on a raclette built in to their table. Book ahead, especially in winter, when Le Chalet d'Avron is at its hottest.
