Toronto's top 50 restaurants
I have to come up with the top-50 dinner restaurants in downtown Toronto for a travel guide.
Below is my preliminary list (in no particular order).
I'd love to hear Hound opinions on what doesn't belong, or what I've missed. Thanks!
jamie kennedy x3
auberge du pomier
greg couillard's spice room & chutney bar
sopra upper lounge
starfish oyster bed & grill
crush wine bar
barbarian's steak house
I can only comment on one of your choice - was only in Toronto for a few days for a business conference- but I loved Bymark.
Went twice over the 5 days we were there and each time was fabulous. I especially loved that they went out of the way for us to find a wine that would complement both our meals. Food was wonderful, we were thrilled with the wine and the service was great.
Lai Wah Heen, Vertical, Red's, Chez Victor... seems like some very fine chefs/establishments are not represented on that list...

Exactly the same sentiment I was thinking! Not to criticize your list too much, but it's not exactly "chowhoundish" to me. I would like to see more cheap, homey, ethnic, neighbourhood joints on any list purporting to be a "best of".
I don't need to know where the yuppie sheep go to eat, unless it's for the purpose of avoiding whatever tragically hip scene is currently in vogue.
