Raclette says
Raclette, (a word derived from the French verb racler, meaning, "to scrape") has been a tradition in Europe for hundreds of years. A traditional meal comprising Alpine cheeses melted on the wheel and then scraped onto accompaniments such as potatoes, other vegetables bread and meats, it has been a favorite particularly among inhabitants of the regions where it originated, namely the Valais and Haute Savois regions of Switzerland and France.

Raclette, the restaurant, brings this tradition to life in the East Village of Manhattan with authentic Raclette de Valais and Raclette de Savoie cheeses melted on half wheels and scraped tableside directly onto customers' plates.

Customer can choose among a traditional or more contemporary preparations of potatoes, and cured and cooked meats. Each individual raclette dish comes with two tableside scrapes of cheese.

Raclette is AMAZING. It used to be in this TEENY 8 person spot on Avenue A but now its moved to a bigger location. Personally I like the bigger location less, it really smells like cheese (I KNOW I KNOW) but the raclette is incredible. Be nice and super friendly and they'll maybe come back to give you more!

After seeing the tons of instagram and facebook videos about this place, I thought the food was overrated. Boy was I wrong! The dishes that they pair with the crazy amounts of cheese actually make sense and are very very delicious. I enjoyed the fact that we got 2-3 servings of cheese for a single plate and everything was so good! I recommend making a reservation because it's not worth waiting outside if you can just go right in and enjoy the meal. Will definitely be coming back for another round.
