"Booked for dinner here the night before the Mt. Tremblant Ironman. The place was busy and it was raining so no outside tables. Service was professional if a little disengaged. Food was good but not great - I had 2 appetizers (beef carpaccio and caprese salad). Two companions had mushroom ravioli - one as a starter and one as a main (small portion for the price) - and also the trout appetizer. Food came out FAST - did not make for a leisurely evening but our son was doing the Ironman so an early morning start for all of us.
While there are many places to eat in Mt. Tremblant, they are aimed at skiers so lots of pizza, burgers etc. This place could be considered more high end but frankly, it felt like it was stuck in the 1980s to me.

From the team behind One Off Hospitality Group, Executive Chef Paul Kahan and restaurateurs Donnie Madia, Terry Alexander and Kimberly Galban present Nico Osteria. An authentically Italian seafood restaurant, Nico Osteria at Thompson Chicago hotel brings rustic simplicity to the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast. <br /><br />Chef Erling Wu-Bower’s house-made pastas and fresh seafood, alongside Pastry Chef Amanda Rockman's unconventionally creative and approachable style are perfectly suited for the setting’s rustic elegance. <br /><br />Salone Nico is a welcoming gathering space, celebrating the European tradition of afternoon apertifis and low-proof cocktails. The approachable wine list features wines from Italy and Greece, as well as grower champagne, with an emphasis on small producers and older vintages. Grab a cocktail, sneak in a light bite or settle in for a night cap at Salone Nico.

"This place is hot-hot-hot - and with good reason. Inventive menu with unusual offerings - this is not your Mom and Pop Italian food. Super fresh crudo and oysters, interesting salads (the crab salad was amazing and the prosciutto with fresh cheese was memorable). Portions are generous. We stuck to pasta and were not disappointed. The stuffed papardelle was creative and very tasty. We declined dessert although what we saw coming out from the kitchen looked oh so tempting. We sat at the bar (called the chef's table at check-in) and enjoyed our view of the goings on in the open kitchen. We ordered wines by the glass and my glass of white was corked... called this to the attention of the bartender and it was replaced with apologies. Go here!"
