    On our recent visit to the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz we were lucky enough to discover another culinary gem that cannot be overlooked - Chesa al Parc. While not physically situated within the main property, this exquisite restaurant is merely a stone's throw away, just up the road, offering an experience that seamlessly marries history, authenticity, and unparalleled service. As we stepped into this culinary haven, the warmth of its timber-clad walls greeted us, cocooning us in an ambiance that was both inviting and authentic.

    Chesa al Parc's rich history permeates every nook and cranny, tracing back to a time when traditions were meticulously upheld. This historical authenticity is tastefully woven into the very fabric of the restaurant, enriching the dining experience. The interior, adorned with vintage accents and reminiscent of a bygone era, effortlessly transports diners to a world where each moment is an homage to the past while remaining firmly rooted in the present.

    From the moment we were seated, a symphony of scents were upon us, the alluring fragrance of timber-clad walls that whispered tales of timeless elegance. Our exploration commenced with a salad which we shared, the Colourful Mixed Summer Salad accompanied by delicately grilled strips of corn-fed chicken breast. The salad was filled with the vibrant hues of summer, the freshness of the ingredients evident in every bite. The grilled chicken added a subtle smokiness that harmonised perfectly with the crispness of the salad.

    "As we departed Chesa al Parc, we carried with us a piece of its legacy, eager to share our encounter with others."

    As the main courses beckoned, I found myself drawn to the Aglio Olio e Peperoncino pasta—a classic Italian delight that embodies simplicity done right. The dish arrived as a work of art on a plate, the aroma of garlic and chilli dancing in the air. With each forkful, the al dente pasta mingled harmoniously with the rich, olive oil-infused sauce, leaving a subtle hint of spiciness that delighted the palate.

    Meanwhile, my partner's choice, the Spaghetti Bolognese, showcased the restaurant's knack for transforming a classic staple into a culinary masterpiece. The sauce, a symphony of slow-cooked tomatoes, herbs, and tender minced meat, clung lovingly to the strands of perfectly cooked spaghetti. It was a comforting embrace of flavours that resonated with authenticity.

    Complementing our meal was a local (ish) 2020 Brivio Merlot Riflessi d’Epoca, the wine's deep, ruby hue was a prelude to its complex aromas and balanced notes, enhancing each dish with a symphony of flavours.

    Although the allure of the dessert options tugged at our senses, the midday setting reminded us to exercise restraint. We relished the sweet anticipation of perhaps returning another time to experience these temptations.

    In the heart of Chesa al Parc, history is woven, authenticity celebrated, and elegance exalted. Every element, from the scent of the timber-clad walls to the impeccable service, harmonises to create an experience that transcends mere dining. It's a journey through time with a firm nod to the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, guided by the hands of skilled artisans who understand that the essence of exceptional dining lies not only in the flavours on the plate, but in the emotions and memories that linger long after the last bite. As we departed Chesa al Parc, we carried with us a piece of its legacy, eager to share our encounter with others and to return to its embrace whenever the call for an extraordinary dining experience arises once again.
