Air Canada’s enRoute has announced their list of the top 10 best new restaurants in the country in 2017, and all major urban regions are represented.
This year, the prestigious top title goes to traditional Italian eatery Battuto in Quebec City.
Battuto topped the list of 10 other Canadian restaurants, which was narrowed down from the long list of 30 new spots.
Other restaurants in the 2017 top ten include Brothers in Toronto, casual-upscale wine bar Baron Von Der Fels in Calgary, Mak N Ming in Vancouver, and a whopping three restaurants in Edmonton: Clementine, Cafe Linnea, and Alder Room.
Here are the Top 10 Best New Restaurants in Canada 2017:
1. Battuto, Quebec City
2. Canis, Toronto
3. Baron Von Der Fels, Calgary
4. Mak N Ming, Vancouver
5. Clementine, Edmonton
6. Cafe Linnea, Edmonton
7. Riviera, Ottawa
8. Brothers Food & Wine, Toronto
9. Marconi, Montreal
10. Alder Room, Edmonton
enRoute anonymously sent writers across the country on a dining marathon to try the top 30 eateries that launched between spring 2016 and June 2017.
The final list of top eateries were chosen based on their ingredients, service, locations, and ultimately the vision of the chef.
The top ranking restaurants were then announced at a public gala on October 19 in Toronto.
Last year in 2016, Vancouver’s Kissa Tanto took home the honour of Best New Restaurant, so now it’s time to move the foodie spotlight to the other coast.
