Need further affirmation that Toronto is a great food city? Seven Toronto restaurants are in the running for Air Canada’s Best New Restaurants list in 2017.
Awarded annually in the November issue of enRoute Magazine, the list recognizes culinary talent and achievement from coast to coast. Last year only one Toronto restaurant, Alo cracked the top 10 despite half a dozen nominations.
This year, the seven new Toronto restaurants on the list of nominees are,
- Brothers, Toronto
- Canis, Toronto
- Grey Gardens, Toronto
- Jackpot Chicken Rice, Toronto
- La Banane, Toronto
- Lake Inez, Toronto
- Montgomery’s, Toronto
The long list for 2017 includes 30 notable Canadian restaurants which opened in the last 12 months. Nominations are based on recommendations from a panel of food experts and will be ranked by one anonymous writer tasked with a month-long marathon of eating.
The top 10 new restaurants will be unveiled at a gala event in Toronto and online in late October.
