The Dish Power Rankings: EDM Superstar Edition


In this week’s roundup: Deadmau5 talks Toronto food, and Tim Hortons hits the big-time 

1. The Chase The number-one restaurant in Toronto, as per EDM superstar Deadmau5.

2. Momofuku Milk Bar Everyone’s psyched about Milk Bar’s foray into soft-serve. It’s currently got two flavours: one that tastes like the milky dregs at the bottom of your cereal bowl, and another inspired by a Tim Hortons double-double. So, coffee flavoured.

3. Weslodge If the BBC and Deadmau5 say it’s cool, then it must be cool. Also, this meat platter looks ridiculous, but in a really strong way.

4. Tim Hortons Big week for T-Ho’s: first it gets commemorated via soft-serve, and then it makes headlines as the site of the city’s latest mayoral sighting—which, in the vein of any good Sasquatch spotting, has become a subject of major controversy.

5. Gusto 101 Will Gusto’s new spin-off make King Street East cool? We have about two years to speculate (that’s apparently when the renos will be done).

6. Fonda Lola For cinqo de mayo, Fonda presented a new piñata for smacking every hour, on the hour, for the entire day. Now that’s service.

7. Shōtō Shōtō chef Mitch Bates earned a spot on mega-blog Eater’s list of North America’s most promising culinary “young guns.” The not-so-good news? He was the only Canadian chef to make the cut.

8. Fat Pasha The Twitterverse has been buzzing about Pasha’s new lunch menu. Who needs stodgy French toast when there’s Nutella-babka bread pudding?

9. Luckee Susur’s packed new dim-sum spot officially became one of the first restaurants in Toronto to serve sake on tap.

10. Harbour Sixty Now on the menu at the opulent steakhouse: a hunk of meat so life-changingly spectacular that it costs $1000. (That’s $25 per ounce, just fyi.)

Honourable Mentions: Bar Volo is really cool, too, according to the BBC. Also, we’re pretty sure Deadmau5 and Tom Green endorsed La Société and Wvrst, respectively, although they struggled a bit with the names.
