Today we return to Toronto, Ontario and focus on 16 of its hottest restaurants. This comes nearly a year since the last Toronto Heatmap. This time around, Toronto-based food writer and photographer Gizelle Lau has shared her picks for the hottest dining her city currently has to offer.
So what's hot in Toronto right now? Well, there are a couple of stylish new spots for Spanish pintxos (Bar Isabel and Patria), plus some Thai tapas from Toronto's "reigning king and queen of Thai cuisine" (Sabai Sabai). Also among the selections are a new project Top Chef Canada season two winner Carl Heinrich (Richmond Station), David Chang's multi-concept glass cube that recently introduced Toronto to crack pies (Momofuku), and a barbecue restaurant that serves what it calls "crack rolls" (Electric Mud BBQ). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Toronto, a chronicle of the city's restaurants of the moment.
Think there are any glaring omissions? You know what to do.
