Have you ever found yourself at a restaurant and just unsure what to order? Sometimes there are many choices and you just want to know what is the best thing they offer. What are they known for? What is their signature dish? You can ask the waiter but sometimes they say everything is good and then you are left in the same position of uncertainty. SO you scope through the menu, make your choice and you and your friends receive your plates. Next thing you know, your friend says it’s the best thing they have ever ordered and they are sitting across from you oohing and ahhing over their dish. Yours is still good but you just wish for an instant that you had ordered what she ordered.
Well, we have decided to help you order the best items on the menu every time you head out to one of our local restaurants here in Mont Tremblant. We are going to give you a cheat sheet. Here’s a list of appetizers, main meals or desserts that are infamous at certain restaurants. If you go to this restaurant, whether you are a local or a tourist, you just HAVE to order these items. Now, you’ll always have the best dish at your table and you’ll be the one everyone looks to for advice on what to order.
Let’s start with some signature dishes in the resort village of Mont Tremblant.
They have the filet mignon and then they have Filet Mignon ‘La Forge’. If they name a dish after the restaurant, that’s usually a good sign. This filet mignon is topped with Fois Gras, mushrooms and a red wine sauce.
