sEb - near Mont Tremblant
WHY isnt everyone eating here???? located a few min from Mont Tremblant ski village, the food is miles (millions of miles) from everything in the area.
The only complaint would be that the soft, fluffy bread was cold. Everything else from the aged balsamic for the bread, amazingly creamy and lightly briny oysters (with a surprisingly complementary yuzu drizzle, we had 6 but easily could have eaten 10 times that and made a meal of that alone), excellent delicate trout gravlax (was told it was homemade), and fantastic foie gras (the boy LOVED LOVED LOVED this so much) appetizers to the veal shank/veal confit(?) entree and fish with a corn/something else entree was so great, disappointed i cannot remember the details of these dishes. very upscale and interesting menu. great welcome surprise in this little town. intimate warm setting. we both had the price fixe menu at $45cad and 2 extra starters. waiter was very wise in the ways of food and probably wine. he did seem to be familiar with our selection, which we had smuggled in. i didnt like the dessert of some type of small "donut", that reminded me of passover pancakes lol but came in a great maple sauce (but smelled like a reduced honey) but the Boy loved them. wish i could remember more details but nevertheless RUN to this place if you are in the area. great deal great service and great food. if it werent our last night in town we would have gone back the next night. this meal in nyc would be twice as much, at least.
