The international gastronomic landmark, the Michelin Guide, released its first Canadian edition on Tuesday, September 13, highlighting 74 restaurants in the country’s largest city, Toronto.
Inspectors thus awarded stars to twelve restaurants “Quality food, worth a stop”And two stars for one lucky winner, one “Great food to try”The guide writes.
“Shows Toronto deserves to be Michelin Guide’s first choice in the Far North”Gwendal Pouleneck, international director of the Michelin Guides, noted in a press release. “Diversity of Choice” reflects that “Cosmopolitan Soul” of the Queen City.
Since May, inspectors have been traveling anonymously through culinary establishments in the city, rating restaurants according to a system the organization keeps secret. Among the thirteen winners, if contemporary Italian gastronomy is mentioned, Japanese cuisine is a benchmark with collected stars.
Red Guide has also recognized the quality of gastronomy of 17 other restaurants that are offered at reasonable prices. Three special prizes were also awarded for quality of service, sommelier and cocktail.
“Toronto was already a multicultural place where people met to enjoy architecture, art and nature, and it’s now becoming a world-class destination for foodies”The director of the Michelin guides concluded.
