October 2006 (St. Moritz, Switzerland) – Tantalizing savings, a stylish new restaurant and the season’s most-anticipated Alpine events are all on the menu for Badrutt’s Palace in St. Moritz as the legendary Palace hotel heads into winter 2006-2007. With the new season scheduled to open December 5th, 2006, Badrutt’s is riding high after recently being honored as the World’s Leading Ski Resort by the World Travel Awards – the second year in a row the hotel has brought home that lofty prize. Badrutt’s will toast the season by offering a new dining experience at Le Bistro, a cozy and stylish new restaurant soon to be occupying the former space of Trattoria.

With a sleek continental design created by Italian restaurant designer Maurizio Argenti and a simple spin on contemporary French Cuisine by Badrutt’s Palace’s Executive Chef Frédéric Breuil, Le Bistro is certain to sizzle as one of the village’s “must-dine” scenes this winter. Chef Breuil’s new menu will light up Le Bistro’s space with creations such as Salmon tartar with potato cream or Seabass fillet with nicoise vegetables, fried artichokes and balsamic sauce. A three-course set menu chosen from à la carte dishes will run CHF 85. Mark your winter calendar for the special Seafood Spectacular (January 9-13, 2007) and Burgundy Specialties & Wines (January 21-25, 2007) culinary events at Le Bistro.

Though it won’t be long before winter starts dusting the Alps with white, there is still plenty of time to reserve special Winter Getaways at Badrutt’s Palace with savings of more than 50%.
