Update from Nov. 13th, 2020 – We officially declare the raclette season 2020-21 opened in San Francisco!! And it is with emotion that we remember our successful event from last year with the screening of “Les Bronzés font du ski” movie in partnership with TLF and Matterhorn Restaurant.
Even though this year Raclette’s parties will be a little different with smaller gatherings, it is a perfect main course for a 2 to 8 person dinner. Here are some places where to find cheese and charcuterie in San Francisco and the bay area.
Matterhorn Restaurant and Bakery – Reopened in 2019 by Natalie and Jason Horwath, two Americans who have lived in Switzerland for several years, this is our favorite
address for a ready-made solution! Organic products, some prepared locally, will delight your palate. The Horwath did a little deco refresh about a year ago while preserving the original Swiss chalet aspect, installed a miniature train, and added a cable car cabin! Alpine atmosphere guaranteed.
Since Nov 13th, 2020, the restaurant had to close indoor dining but the take-out is still available on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to noon. Raclette and fondues are a must, and their pastries are just great.
Address: 2323 Van Ness Av. San Francisco
