While this small enclave is known for its skiing, Mont-Tremblant also has some great restaurants. Here are our picks for the area’s best dining destinations:
1. La Quintessence Restaurant & Winebar. Chef Jean-Luc de la Bruère does wonders with his table d’hôte at La Quintessence Restaurant & Winebar on the bottom floor of Hotel Quintessence. Specialties include sun-dried tomato gnocchi, salmon seared in garlic flower oil and the region’s most sophisticated wine list.
2. La Savoie. This cozy, candlelit Tremblant restaurant focuses on the belly-warming food of France’s La Savoie region. Go there for fondue (choose from cheese, broth or red wine varieties), creamy raclette as well as meats cooked at your table on stone grills.
3. Aux Truffes. Chef Martin Faucher serves upscale local cuisine — don’t miss the Quebec foie gras. You’ll find other dishes, such as red deer fillet with strawberry and pepper sauce or roasted duck magret stuffed with foie gras and truffles and topped with black truffle sauce.
4. Seb l’Artisan Culinaire. At Seb, Quebec cuisine gets a gourmet makeover — poutine, for example, comes with organic duck breast, roasted vegetables, cheese curds and foie gras emulsion. Bison is plated with braised red wine cabbage, fingerling potatoes and a wild berry demi glace.
5. La Forge Bar & Grill. The grill is one of Tremblant’s most sophisticated dining experiences, specializing in fine wines and a variety of meats, poultry and fish grilled over maplewood coals. Try the filet mignon with foie gras, mushrooms and red wine sauce.
