The 2017 Michelin Guide has awarded a third star to Le 1947, honoring the work and innovation of chef Yannick Alléno and his team. Since his arrival in 2008, Yannick Alléno has revolutionized the codes of gastronomy to delight guests with unprecedented experiences.  His bold and resolutely modern cuisine perfectly expresses the values of the LVMH group – creativity, expertise and excellence.


At Le 1947, Chef Alléno draws inspiration from the rich diversity of local Savoie ingredients to craft a cuisine that celebrates flavor and taste at the heart of every dish. The dishes are a culinary score where each nuance is flawlessly executed. The current season’s menu features pike accompanied by a millefeuille of spinach, Maviar and Arctic Char gravlax.
