Review: The Little Chalet

A little piece of Brazil has taken over property right here in Boca Raton—in the form of a prime steakhouse and fondue restaurant. The Little Chalet first introduced its fine dining experience to Brazil over 35 years ago and has been recognized as one of Brazil’s top 10 restaurants. This family-owned establishment has multiple locations in Brazil, and now opens its U.S. flagship location in downtown Boca Raton. The restaurant is European in its essence, resembling a Swiss cottage with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. When I arrived, I felt as though I was somewhere in the Alps, cozy inside the ski lodge, awaiting a hearty meal and warm mugs of hot chocolate. I was definitely not in South Florida anymore!

As with any fondue restaurant, I knew there would definitely be cheese and chocolate in my future—but what else?! Oh, there was plenty more, let me tell you—starting with two words that made me the happiest girl in the world: truffle burrata. Yes, rich and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth burrata infused with black truffle and garnished with cherry tomatoes. You can bet a million bucks I was grinning from ear to ear. You can’t really go wrong with burrata and truffle, especially when combined.

There is plenty to be had in the way of steak, but lucky for me, there are seafood choices as well. The almond-crusted Sea Bass and honey-glazed salmon (pictured) are both yummy choices for pescatarians like myself, or those who just prefer fish to beef. But my favorite part of the meal was the white truffle creamed spinach. There I go again with the truffle!

Sure, the cheese and dessert fondue are delicious at The Little Chalet, but it’s definitely those additional options that make the resturant stand out.
