There's not a ton of info, certainly not recent info, about Chamonix on the boards. Does anyone have any updated advice on the area? Any good mountain huts or in town places, or even good places nearby in neighboring towns?
I've been considering Atmosphère, La Maison Carrier, La Calèche, Bergerie de Planpraz and La Cabane Des Praz based on some old posts here.
I'm resigning myself to some degree to overpriced tourist food in exchange for beautiful mountain scenery (and hoping that our bellies will still be full from our first stop in Lyon), but if there are any gems, please share!!
