Need to make some serious coast-t0-coast dining plans in Canada for the next 12 months? Food lovers nationwide have been hungry for the release of the influential Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants 2017 rankings, and the wait is over. Dinner is served!
Not surprisingly, Canada’s three most renown culinary cities, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, occupy much of the list’s real estate. Chef Patrick Kriss’ and Amanda Bradley’s Toronto restaurant Alo take the top honour, and restaurants in The 6ix account for half of the top 10, and 24 spots overall.
Taking another quarter-plus of the list are Montreal restaurants: In the top 10, you’ll find Toqué!, Joe Beef, and Le Vin Papillon, taking the second, third, and fourth place spots respectively. Montreal has a whopping 26 in total. Oh la la!
Vancouver‘s Hawksworth Restaurant slid from its prestigious third place 2016 ranking to a still-respectable sixth, and the country’s western urban culinary champ has 16 overall spots on the big list of 100. Meanwhile, Calgary‘s Pigeonhole rounds out the top 10 in the 10-spot, and has 8 on the list altogether. Not bad, kid!
