Bighorn Bistro opened its doors in the faired town of Chamonix Mont-Blanc in 2015 with hopes of becoming a staple in the local and tourist communities with their fresh homemade food, artisanal beers and a friendly service. They did just that!
The spacious yet warm restaurant is run by an American family who grew up skiing, climbing and running the steep slopes of the Chamonix valley. The fresh baked breads and desserts are made daily by Susan and her son Morgan, the brunch, lunch and dinner menus are prepared by Susan’s daughter Hannah and the bar is run by Hannah’s husband, the affable Rhys Jones off the boat from Brisbane Australia. The family originates from the North and wild west of America. The interior décor comes from Cody and Jackson hole Wyoming giving the authentic feel of a rustic western ski lodge with the sophistication of a downtown gastro pub found in the menu.
Bighorn caters to large groups, families and discerning beer and burger lovers. The Sunday Brunch is a must for anyone traveling through town. Bighorn brings together the most traditional brunch items including eggs benedict, huevos rancheros, fresh baked cinnamon rolls and buttermilk pancakes and makes every component fresh daily. They offer a loaded Bloody Mary that will cure any hangover and a fresh squeezed mimosa to share with your friends after an early ski or late lie in!
Bighorn’s beer bar has quickly risen to the top of everyone’s list, local and visiting. Rhys has developed a draft beer list that offers every style, flavor, strength and country brew. With an ever-rotating list, there is always something new to try!
Bighorn is located in Chamonix Sud, with an unbeatable panoramic view of the Mont Blanc Massif mountain range, uninterrupted afternoon sunshine and a bustling pedestrian square with neighboring bars and restaurants within walking distance.
