RitzCoffier brings diners back in time with the atmosphere of a 19th century kitchen. The fireplace dates back to 1873 at the Grand Hotel and copper pots similar to those used by the resort’s chefs between 1873 and 1940 line the walls. The restaurant also uses the antique wooden doors of the Grand Hotel's original refrigerator and its 19th century oven.
