“On the road!” -Laurentians

UPDATE ; DAY

Take a break from the big city or the little daily train to refuel in nature – and great gourmet finds –, it always does a lot of good!

Whether in Val-David, Piedmont or Mont-Tremblant, the Laurentians region is full of little treasures ready to be tasted: here are some excellent addresses to add to your logbook. 

La Sandwicherie Café + Bistro 

This small sandwich shop is the ideal place to have lunch between two activities. They serve sandwiches here gourmet, here reasonable, vitamin salads, as well as some delicacies to take away for the afternoon snack. The place also gives way to a delicatessen section full of local products, ranging from forest products to ciders.

Baumier 

This new wine bar located close to the town of Saint-Sauveur has everything to attract your attention – especially if there is a thirst for wines from sustainable agriculture. To eat, the young rising star Arianne imposes herself with a menu that is both unique and completely adapted to the environment. The terroir of Quebec is definitely on the plate and is sublimated by an intelligent simplicity. About forty minutes from the greater metropolis, Le Baumier can certainly become a must in the summer.

Le Choux Gras

Fairmont Tremblant 

Whether or not you are staying at the prestigious Fairmont Tremblant, an evening at the Choux Gras brasserie could be the gourmet highlight of your stop at Village Tremblant. Ideal for the family or a group of friends with divergent tastes, the menu offers a wide variety of bistro-style dishes with Quebec accents. As much carnivores will enjoy the impressive cut of Tomahawk beef or the filet mignon, as the halibut from Quebec, the salmon or the seafood platter will delight fish lovers. We finish with cabbage, of course!

La Table des Gourmets 

If it is perhaps difficult to have a reservation at this magnificent table in Val-David, it is because that since the pandemic, they are only three. Father and son in the kitchen, mother in full control of her room: welcome to the Table des Gourmets. Here, we have the perfect example demonstrating that the quantity of staff is not correlated to the quality of the product.

We let ourselves be moved by mastered plates, where French techniques look as good as the quality of the ingredients, mostly from the region. A remarkably orchestrated waltz from beginning to end, which we wish would never end.
