The glamorous resort of Zermatt has been a favorite destination of the jet set for decades. Elsie's Bar is where they all come at the end of a hard day's skiing to tuck into platters of shucked oysters, washed down with the finest of Champagnes. Elsie's oozes tradition and old-world charm, from its cozy wooden interiors to the old-fashioned paintings of Zermatt on its walls. In the '60s it was known for its snails and Irish coffees, in the '70s for its ham and eggs with Berlin-style pancakes. Today it serves a small selection of upmarket delicacies—caviar, snails, oysters, homemade foie gras, and beef tartar—along with an outstanding menu of whiskeys and wines.
