Canoe, Nota Bene and Splendido named go-to restaurants for golfers

Tasty triptych: Canoe, scallops at Splendido, Nota Bene  

The RBC Canadian Open rolled into town yesterday, bringing with it such golf heavyweights as Mike Weir, Luke Donald and Paul Casey. Instead of chasing the pros along the St. George’s Golf Club fairway, a better way to spot celeb swingers (that’s not a Tiger Woods joke; he’s not playing) might be to check out the restaurants the PGA Tour has predictably recommended on its Web site. Perennial favourite Canoe, Queen West’s Nota Bene and Harbord fixture Splendido all received top ratings from the PGA Tour’s Travel section. Local fare seems to be the basis for recommendation, as all of them offer quality seafood dishes and Canadian specialties.
