A few days ago, we introduced you to the hotel-restaurant Le Chut through a summer chef’s recipe, just to whet your appetite. Today, we are happy to show you the establishment as a whole, from the terrace to the rooms, with all the novelties and particularities that make this place one of the most beautiful nuggets in the city. Change of owner, new chef, fresh air inside and out, enhancement of the hotel part: there has been a change. Today, the Chut retains its original DNA, all its charm and this special cachet to set out to conquer Strasbourg residents in a whole new way. Small tour of the owner.
We are in the heart of the most beautiful district of the city, the Petite France of course. It is here and more precisely in the rue du Bain-aux-Plantes that we find Le Chut and his new team. Taken over in July 2021 by two Strasbourg residents, Philippe Munck and Michael Roumetfor a long time he remained almost too discreet, almost confidential.
But today, the new team is opening the doors wide, bringing in the sun and bringing a breath of fresh air by transforming this place into a more popular, more accessible restaurant, and that’s obviously not displeasing to us. While preserving the charm of yesteryear and its unique style of its own (not touching historic buildings), the team wanted to make big changes and a whole new vision on all floors.
A new chef, a new team and a whole new idea of catering
Le Chut is both a restaurant and guest rooms. In its style, it is unique in Strasbourg and it is undoubtedly one of the most charming traditional style hotel-restaurants in the city. In the kitchen, there is a young 30-year-old chef, Cyril Ponton, a well-known face in Strasbourg catering. His own style is local cuisine, fresh made from market products, a cuisine full of colors, packed with original flavors.
In each plate, Cyril brings particular importance to the visual and whatever the dish that is brought to you, there will always be a new flavor that tickles the taste buds. Even if the dish that you are offered is a seemingly simple staple, braised meat or fish, there’s always a touch of surprise and that makes all the difference. Between world cuisine and traditional cuisine (French and Alsatian), the chef has a blast offering great classics, often revisited, but also small nuggets that we are not used to seeing as corn cream or a sauerkraut chutney (among others). His sauces, very punchy and always worked, end up making us think that we are dealing with a real cook.
A cocoon of calm and greenery in the heart of the city
By settling in Chut, we change universe: we are still in Strasbourg, but the charm of the place takes us elsewhere. This historic half-timbered building, this terrace overlooking the water, these tall trees and large umbrellas, we are in an exceptional place with a charm that does not come out of any decoration catalog. The old stones, the climbing plants, this wood that you can almost hear creaking, these beautiful white tablecloths, the whole environment is quite bewitching, it almost seems that the place has a soul.
But Le Chut is not only a terrace, it’s also a pretty patio and two interior rooms, on the ground floor and on the first floor, where you can sit down and eat when the weather is less. clement. In all, there can be at least 80 place settings and everything is more or less removable, perfect for small discreet dinners or receptions with several people. The people of Strasbourg know very little about this facet of the Chut, however, believe me, it is worth a look, you just have to dare to pass the landing and enter this building as charming as it is steeped in history. .
A restaurant, yes, but a hotel, too!
You understood, Le Chut is also a hotel and as you could imagine, it is unlike any other. In all, guests will be able to find 7 bedrooms, each with their own cachet, their own personality and there too, it requires a detour. Old house obliges, the wood, the attics, the small windows of the Petite France… More typical and this in every corner. Between elegance, comfort, calm and authenticity, you really want to settle into your rooms just to get a little drunk on the place before returning to normal life.
Le Chut is therefore delicacy, charm, aesthetics and a real signature. In fact, we come here to have fun with the people we love and we always leave with a little taste of coming back to it on our lips. And for that, Pierette, Flora, Cyril, Céline, Jessica, Philippe and Michael are keeping watch.
