Our first meal at the Tremont Cafe was a wonderful experience. To begin, we shared the delectable chicken liver pâté (prepared with red peppercorns -- eat them -- and tiny green apple slices) which we ate on the most perfect slices of baguette. The pâté was a real highlight. Then I ate the duck confit prepared with a hint of orange, and served with parsnip purée, lentils, and sprouts. Perfect for winter. She ate the lamb shank with root vegetables: carrots, sweet potatoes, and maybe parsnip. They were both excellent. For dessert, we shared bourbon vanilla crème brûlée, which was nothing spectacular but nicely done. We would have appreciated better guidance on wine pairings for main courses, and the by-the-glass list is quite short. Given that we were driving back to Toronto, we were not prepared to have a full bottle. However, overall the service was very strong. The restaurant is beautiful, chic but casual. The library bar looks like it would be lovely for a larger group. Please improve signage and shovel the path from the parking lot to the restaurant, as we both came in with wet feet after being unable to find the door. Customers should note that the menu slightly varies from what is on the website, but the thrust is the same. Bravo. 5 stars. We paid $100 + $20 tip for one appetizer, two entrees, one dessert, and two glasses of wine.
