It’s another banner year for Vancouver’s dining scene, with over a dozen of the city’s fantastic restaurants landing a spot on the list of Canada’s 100 Best.

The highest-ranking Vancouver restaurant to make the 2016 cut is Hawksworth, coming in at number three, just one place down from their previous year’s finish- in the number two slot.

Hawksworth earned praised for defying the boundaries of hotel dining, as well as the evolution of chef David Hawksworth’s elegant cuisine: “Now his style is far more Canadian—which is to say more multi-ethnic, and more approachable. It has also grown lighter, more healthful, and—often—more assertively spiced,” notes Canada’s 100 Best.

Canada’s 100 Best is a publication that “aims to be indispensable to anyone genuinely interested in dining out in this country in an informed way,” explains Editor-in-Chief Jacob Richler.

The rankings are determined by a combination of expert and informed opinions from not only Canada’s restaurant critics, but well-traveled and food-savvy diners, as well as industry insiders.

In addition to Hawksworth’s top showing, Vancouver can be just as proud of the remaining 15 restaurants singled out for their excellence.

  • No. 13: L’Abattoir
