Foodies tend to know the best place to eat in their own cities, but sometimes it's nice to take a look at our home and native land on a larger plate.
On Tuesday, online restaurant reservation website OpenTable released their 100 Best Restaurants for Foodies in Canada list, compiled through users' reviews.
“From locally sourced ingredients, artisanal cocktails, unconventional cooking methods, to an eclectic fusion of international cuisines, restaurants across the country are setting themselves apart by offering up new and unique dining experiences that are hitting the mark with self-proclaimed foodies,” Ziv Schierau, of OpenTable Canada, said in a statement.
The list was generated through more than 300,000 restaurant reviews by users, and each spot was given an overall score. However, you should note not all restaurants in Canada are listed on OpenTable (there are more than 1,800), so the restaurants that you feel may be missing may not be included on the site's database.
Ontario had 45 restaurants on the list, followed by Alberta with 22, while B.C. and Quebec both had 14 on the list.
But some of the restos that ended up on the list should come as no surprise to the average foodie. Toronto's French spot Alo Restaurant, St. John's Raymonds and Eden at Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff have all been on other top lists.
Below (in no particular order), we have some of the restaurants named in OpenTable's list, as well as what you can get on the menu. Check out all 100 restaurants here.
