After a two-year hiatus, the list of Canada’s best new restaurants is back! The 2022 list takes a look at the country’s top dining destinations from coast to coast.

In an annual publication, the list of the best spots to dine is selected by a team of 100 judges and taste makers.

According to Canada’s 100 Best Restaurant List, in our current post-pandemic culinary universe, “supporting local restaurants and the people who love them has never been more critical to the survival and thriving of one of our most deeply impacted industries. The list offers a clear path for diners to make informed decisions, and holds up a standard for chefs to strive for.”

So who made the list this year? Let’s take a look!
