Recent Mont-Tremblant Recs?
I'm traveling to Mont-Tremblant with two children who are adventurous eaters. I have been to Tremblant several times, so know that the food on the mountain is expensive and tends to be mediocre. I'm familiar with St-Jovite, and love Cheval de Jade, but that's too fancy for the kids. I see that most of the Tremblant posts are pretty old, so I'm looking for some updates. What restaurants are good, worth the price, and will be happy to serve a 10 year old and and 11 year old who are looking forward to their first trip to Canada? (I see that someone recently responded to a post about Quidi Vidi in Ste.-Adele, which closed over 40 years ago. I went there on my first trip to the Laurentians when I was 10 years old, and I still remember thinking that it was more exotic than anything I had seen on my native Long Island. That's the kind of memory that I'd like to give the kids).
On your way up to Tremblant you could stop in Val David and visit Le Petit Poucet Restaurant. Poucet is a original Quebecois restaurant with items like French Canadian pea soup loaded with there in house smoked ham, great breakfasts, super ham dishes and nice maple sugar pies. With a takeout that sells you all of their products ready to go.If you go on a Saturday about a quarter mile away is the Val David farmers market one of the best in Quebec. If you want a little fancier tand very innovative Les Zebres across from the Farmers Market is a top laurentian restaurant specializing in fresh daily local products. He names his suppliers on the menu e.g. Tony's shitake mushrooms.
