Named after the storied Montreal Hot Dog shack Chez Ma Tante serves food that can only be described as European. Inspired by unassuming eateries that dot the content – pubs, cafes, bistros and trattorias-Canadian born Aidan O’Neal and native New Yorker Jake Leiber serve dishes like chips with garlicky aioli, pig’s head terrine with sauce ravigote, kohlrabi and apple salad, and grilled pork shoulder with salsa verde and lentils.
Chez Ma Tante’s Pancakes were exceptional, according to my son Ryan! As were the fries and aioli! The Kedgeree: curried rice, poached cod, celery salad was amazingly conceived and left me wanting to return.
