This imposing, colourful beast stands guard at the entrance of M Steak Moderne, the Manoir Saint-Sauveur’s brand-new restaurant. The recently opened 70-seat steak house offers contemporary, elegant decor as well as a menu featuring premier quality meat and fish. House specialties include 1855 Black Angus beef (aged 30 to 365 days), carpaccio (seared beef and smoked salmon), and tartar (beef, truffled salmon, and bigeye tuna).
The M Steak Moderne is the latest of several investments totalling $13 million. Last year, the Manoir completely redesigned its main dining room. Now dubbed La Tablée, the 120-seat restaurant’s refined, friendly atmosphere welcomes guests as they enjoy a culinary experience filled with typical Italian and Mediterranean flavours. A variety of pizzas and other dishes cooked in a wood-fired oven will delight guests of all ages.
The Manoir Saint-Sauveur offers two other gourmet spaces in addition to its restaurants and banquet halls, each with a distinct ambiance. With its rustic-chic décor and mouth-watering bistro menu, Le Boudoir Bar Lounge (100 seats) is the perfect place to satisfy your hunger or enjoy a drink. In summer and when the weather permits, the covered outdoor terrace is just the thing for lunch or cocktails.
To celebrate its 20th birthday, Fairmont Tremblant is reinventing its restaurant offering to become THE culinary destination in the Tremblant region. Four new restaurants, including the sublime Choux Gras brasserie, were the result of a $6 million investment.
