New Year’s Day is always a special holiday. People reference this day as a marker for new beginnings and there may be no better way to get the new year—and, perhaps, a new life—started than sharing a meal with someone special at Restaurant Sinclair. Quietly nestled in the beautiful garden of L’Hotel St-Sulpice, in Old Montreal, this exquisite eatery brings together celebrated culinary traditions and contemporary ideologies to give you the most memorable experience you will probably find in all of North America, in at least the whole of Canada.
The St. Sulpice Hotel Sinclair Restaurant features a December 31st prix fixe menu for a cool $60. This is an example of the menu offerings featured during the 2016 New Year’s Eve celebration. Each item from this menu has also been paired with a glass of wine for an even more delectable and unique experience. The wine pairing option is an additional $50 for the whole of the meal. Consider enjoying this in the Sinclair private party rooms, too.
The first course of the night should help to tantalize the taste buds and warm your presence up to the rest of the meal:
- Torchan-style Quebec foie gras served with a McIntosh chutney, homemade brioche, and apple cider jelly—2013 Chateau Pesquie P&E Chaudiere Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise
The second course offers something a little lighter in texture but not in flavor:
- Pan-seared fresh Japan scallops served with a Madagascar-vanilla pumpkin mash, broken chestnuts, and a hazelnut butter foam—Vinas Cousino-Macul Isadora Valle de Maipo Sauvignon Gris
