Before you decide where to eat in Alsace, a quick trawl through my Alsace restaurants page on this site could save you a lot of money and disappointment. Change is in the air, and I aim to update it regularly, so keep checking in. Makeovers are in the air too: the fabled Auberge de l’Ill (famous tame stork pictured above, some dishes and monogrammed butter below), where they celebrated 50 years of 3-stardom on 9th February 2017, is closed for a month for a complete refurb and will reopen some time in mid-March. Over in Colmar, our favourite L’Atelier du Peintre just closed their doors for 2 months and will resume normal service on 31st March. Otherwise it’s business as usual, and you should find something for most budgets and most occasions. Bon app!
