February 21, 2012 ─ Montréalers will be the first to admit that they have somewhat of a weakness for terrasse-sitting, and now Le Club Chasse et Pêche spoils us with another chic spot to eat and sip.
Le Club owners Claude Pelletier and Hubert Marsolais treat guests to even more culinary finesse on the terrasse of the gorgeous Château Ramezay, just across the street from their restaurant. And this being Old Montréal, your good eats naturally come served with prestige and history. In fact, in 1705, the governor of New France, Claude de Ramezay, had his residence built here with a back yard that held an orchard, a kitchen garden and a pleasure garden.
From your table, you can look out on a smaller-scale version of the governor’s posh patch, as you indulge in succulent seasonal fare that includes chilled lobster soup, scallop ceviche and salmon gravlax, with a wine list that shines the spotlight on crisp whites and excellent by-the-glass selections.
So sit back, relax and enjoy a mouth-watering meal and a fine vintage while the fragrant scents of strawberries, rosemary, peonies, savoury and day lilies waft about you. Without a doubt, Le Club Chasse et Pêche has upped the Montréal terrasse experience.
