Chowhounds best 10 Resturants in GTA - 2012 version
We did this almost exactly a year ago so it's time for a refresh
Please read and follow these instructions
Each poster may submit 1 reply containing a list of up to 10 restaurants they consider to be the best in the GTA. Nothing else, no comments, no meta discussions, just a list. Order is not significant.
Make your own judgement as to what you consider GTA but please lets limit it to places one can have a normal dinner with a glass of wine and still have time to sober up and drive home by 1AM.
Any cuisine, any service style, any price point.
You MUST have actually eaten in the restaurant in question at least once within the last 18 months
You MUST have eaten in the restaurant under the CURRENT ownership and/or executive chef (so this means for example that for the Black Hoof that means during the tenure of Brandon Olsen)
Deadline is Midnight January 31st at which point we tabulate the results and post them here.
Excellent - was waiting to see if shekamoo was going to initiate this again, otherwise I was planning to post a note. Thanks bytepusher. I'll kick things off...in no particular order...
Guu Izakaya (Church Street)
Khao San Road
Pizzeria Libretto (Ossington)
Saving 4 spots for those "oh crap, totally forgot about them" moments as others start to post their lists...
Happy new year. Cheers!
We walked by "yours truly" on the weekend, en route to Enoteca Sociale. They weren't open yet but a friendly woman at the door saw us peeking in and handed us a card - looked cute. The menu looked interesting and the bits I read online about the owners, chef and menu format piqued my curiosity - would love to hear more.
Guu Sake Bar
Pho Thien Than
