I just came across upon Maclean’s Top 50 Canadian Restaurants and decided to share them with you. The list was compiled by Maclean’s food columnist Jacob Richler, who

“aimed for a balance of old and new, cheap and pricey, casual and posh. The only thing they [the top 50 restaurants] all have in common is the promise of an all-but-assured good dining experience.”

One thought on “Maclean’s Top 50 Canadian Restaurants for 2012

  1. I’ve eaten at a handful of these restaurants and don’t get it. There are some on there that I agree with, Model Milk for example was fantastic. But there are plenty of other, better, restaurants that have been missed. Lots of discussion around this on Twitter. These lists are created by editors to sell mags and I suspect that’s just what this one is aiming to do.
