The world-famous MICHELIN® Guide has revealed its inaugural Canadian edition, awarding all-important stars and honours to 74 restaurants across Toronto.
One restaurant, chef Masaki Saito’s Sushi Masaki Saito, was awarded two stars. Another 12 restaurants, including the ever-popular Alo and Osteria Giulia, received one star. And a further 17 restaurants were awarded the Bib Gourmand, a designation given to restaurants that provide high-quality, great-value food—where two courses and a glass of wine or dessert can be had for under $60.
Now that Toronto’s dining scene has been critiqued, it’s time to look forward to the next Canadian city to be ranked—Vancouver. The West Coast city’s inaugural MICHELIN® Guide is set to come out later this fall. If there’s anything that can be gleaned from the Toronto rankings it’s that there is a glut of fantastic dining options in Canada and a good many of them are Japanese—so, Vancouver, get that sushi while you can.
