Quatrefoil, Dundas-Top 10 Best New Restaurants in Canada

unturtlesoup Nov 5, 2010 07:24 PM

Although the town of Dundas scarcely breathes a conscious word of its amalgamation into its grittier steel-town mega-mother, Hamilton-the news is in:
Chef-restauranteur couple Georgina Mitropoulos and Fraser Macfarlane's Quatrefoil has been named amongst the best new restaurants in Canada. If that doesn't put a spring in the step of Hamilton, Dundas, and area CHers, I don't know what will.
I'm excited about what this might bring to up the game of chefs around town. This is a gift in celebration of the lovely bounty that this region has to offer, which, at long last, has succeeded in turning some heads.
Congratulations!

        Admittedly, some of us in the humble town of Hamilton (to which Dundas is *technically* attached) get rather excited over such praise....Air Canada's en route has the word "Canada" in it after all, meaning some national press, which might mean the start of something to address the badly executed, mafia-run, overpriced Bistro cuisine that passes as "fine dining" over here.... not to mention our municipal identity crisis....will report back when I have the chance!

        Dundas is a nice little town, but every meal I've had there has been forgettable. I'll have to try this place out next time I'm there.

          I laughed too, but with Bao Bei, Hasaii, Cava, and Edge on this list, it might be worth checking out.

          Does anyone know anything about Stone Soup Inn? Is the cedar Bentwood box a play on a bento box are am I just cuturally ignorant of our Native Canadian heritage? Either way, that looks like a dish worth flying to BC for
