The Restaurant at Pearl Morissette topped the list of 10 other Canadian restaurants, which was narrowed down from the long list of 30 new spots.

Other notable mentions on the list include Vin Mon Lapin and Elena, both in Montreal, Quebec, which rounded out the top three best new culinary gems in the country according to the highly-anticipated annual list.

Air Canada anonymously sent writers across the country on a dining road trip to try the top 30 eateries that launched between late spring 2017 and early June 2018.
