The Pear Tree Restaurant Review: The Pear Tree’s unassuming Burnaby location belies the fact that it’s one of the Lower Mainland’s most noteworthy dining destinations. Chef Scott Jaeger’s dishes reflect his classically grounded culinary approach marked with avant-garde touches. The year-round à la carte menu features such favorites as lobster cappuccino with dashi custard, braised Peace River lamb shank with seared scallops and roasted pear risotto, and pan-roasted Miracle Springs trout with pomme dauphine and butternut squash. A seasonal table d’hôte incorporates the freshest regionally sourced ingredients. Desserts have included a lemon tart with lemon-sour cream sorbet and a vanilla crème brûlée. His charming wife and business partner, Stephanie, adds a refined touch to the service in this sophisticated, intimate space that successfully balances warmth and elegance. Value-oriented and food-friendly, the international wine list also includes an eclectic reserve collection.
