The Ivory Tower

Tremont Tavern

 

David Morris, Co-Chef at Tremont Tavern

 

“The Ivory Tower is a simplistic play on the classics. It offers the nostalgia of childhood but with an elevated flavor profile. The brie adds a quirky touch, while the pepper jelly provides an extra little kick. When it comes to creating things, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. The whole point of food is to be nourishing and comforting.”
