A FINE DINING EXPERIENCE: CHALET SUZANNE
Chalet Suzanne is located in Lake Wales at 3800 Chalet Suzanne Drive. The chalet is near Cypress Gardens and only a short commute of approximately 25 to 30 minutes from the main villa communities. The Chalet specialises in fine dining and also Wedding dinners and other romantic or special occasion meals. The price range is at the upper end of the scale but the settings are really nice and you are paying for the ambience also. The place is family run and has been since 1931 so home cooking at it’s best.
The restaurant is open from 8 am through til 9 pm and serves breakfast lunch and of course dinner. The dress code tends to be smart but casual during the day but normally a jacket is required for the evening sitting.
The Chalet has speciality signature dishes and we can recommend the Grapefruit and Eggs Benedict for breakfast. We have not tried the lunchtime menu but it consists of more specials in a four course menu. The broiled grapefruit in cinnamon looks like something worth trying plus the soup looks good. (The chalet is famous for its award wining soup and you can indeed purchase 13 oz tins to take home from the store or even online and you can choose from dozens of flavours such as Cajun Gumbo, French Onion, Clam Chowder, Seafood and Tomato to name but a few, they even do gift boxes where you can mix and match the flavours! The signature soup seems to be Moon soup which the Chalet boasts as having been to the moon on Apollo 15 and Apollo 16)! The rest of the courses consist of sorbet and light choices of salad, grilled chicken and the likes, not forgetting a vegetarian option
Dinner is a more serious but colourful affair! It consists of 6 courses, the first three being the same as the lunch menu i.e. grapefruit, soup and sorbet and then you have a choice of steaks, chicken, lobsters, shrimps, crab, fish, and lamb and of course the vegetarian option, all served with colourful veg.
If you are looking for something different to the normal why not give the restaurant a try. Another quick point to note is that no matter the party size the gratuity of 18% is already included so you don’t have to leave anymore unless you want to that is!
