Mont-Tremblant, Québec – The Grande Dame of Mont-Tremblant, Le Westin Tremblant, will welcome a new upscale destination for all-day dining in early 2024. Léo boire + manger will be led by Corporate Executive Chef Anthony Walsh from Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality and District Executive Chef Kevin Ramasawmy from Montréal’s Bar George. Their shared and unwavering love of food will be evident in every dish. Québécois in inspiration with multicultural culinary accents throughout, Léo’s menus will change with the seasons and highlight the best ingredients from trusted local producers.
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as weekend brunch and late-night cocktails, Léo will deliver a culinary experience that combines excellence with a welcoming atmosphere, catering to both local residents and visiting guests staying at the resort. Focused on delivering top-notch cuisine that is both refined and accessible to all, the restaurant will also showcase a robust wine list emphasizing natural winemakers and strong local representation with a wide range of varietals and price points.
“We’re honoured and humbled to be involved in this culinary project, especially given its iconic location on Promenade Deslauriers in the centre of the action,” says Chef Walsh, a proud Montréal native who first learned how to ski at Mont-Tremblant. Chef Walsh has spent the last 26 years leading the charges at Oliver & Bonacini restaurants across Canada. “Nothing captures the essence of the region more than a festive brasserie, and we look forward to welcoming everyone when we open our doors during the popular ski season.”
Upon entering Le Westin Tremblant, guests will be invited into Léo’s completely transformed space which will anchor a sensational, elevated culinary and social hub for ‘avant’ and ‘après’ moments throughout the four glorious seasons.
“Exceptional hospitality is achieved by delivering memorable experiences to guests,” said Guillaume Parent, President and Managing Partner of GPHC Capital, which acquired Le Westin Tremblant in 2021. “I am thrilled that Léo will harness the essence of Québec and offer guests an exciting culinary destination to enjoy a superb experience amongst the magic of Tremblant.”
The restaurant’s grand opening is slated for early 2024. For more details, please visit leotremblant.com and follow along on @leotremblant on Instagram and Facebook.
