RitzCoffier, a restaurant at the Bürgenstock Hotel & Resort, showcasing a modern interpretation of classic French cuisine under the direction of chef Bertrand Charles, has earned its first star from the international Guide Michelin. The designation was announced at a gala celebration at the Kultur-und-Kongresszentrum Luzern on February 5.

Among the creations on The RitzCoffier menu are "Ribelmais" Poularde, which is smoked in front of the guest with pine cones and hay from Bürgenberg. Another dish is the "sunrise over the Bürgenstockwald,” a raclette variation à la RitzCoffier with smoked duck, black truffle and La Ratte potatoes, served with fir sprouts, moss and pine cones from the adjacent forest. A demonstration of "sunrise over the Bürgenstockwald" was posted on Instagram by chef Charles.
