Three GTA hot spots make it onto En Route’s list of the best new restaurants in Canada
En Route’s annual best new restaurants list is out, and it contains good news for the culinary scene in and around Toronto. A few deserving but predictable downtown spots have made the cut: Buca, King West’s rustic Italian joint, is at number nine; Local Kitchen, Parkdale’s rustic Italian joint, sits at number four. As for quasi-Toronto mentions, Singhampton’s Haisai takes the top spot—just as it did for us—while the Scaramouche vets at Dundas’s Quatrefoil came in seventh.
With four out of 10 of En Route’s recommendations either downtown or within driving distance of the GTA, it’s looking like Toronto hasn’t been usurped as the culinary capital of Canada just yet.
