The Eater Toronto Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

View as Map

Today we return to Toronto, Ontario and focus on seven of its hottest restaurants. This comes half a year since the last Toronto Heatmap. Among the locations on the list is the modern glass cube that houses four concepts from chef David Chang (Momofuku Toronto), the return to the scene of beloved chefs Michael Caballo and his wife Tobey Nemeth (Edulis), and the new restaurant from Susur Lee and his sons (Bent), the follow-up to popular pub Queen and Beaver (The Oxley). Also, the upcoming Toronto outpost of Daniel Boulud's Michelin-starred Café Boulud.

Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Toronto.

Tried any of the places on the list or feel there are any glaring omissions? You know what to do.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Momofuku Toronto

190 University Ave, Toronto
ON M5H, Canada
(647) 788-8888
Visit Website
All four businesses in David Chang's super-modern Momofuku complex have officially opened their doors. They are: Noodle Bar, an adaptation of the East Village original, Daishō, an eighty-seat space with an emphasis on large format meals, and Shōtō, a 22-seat tasting menu restaurant. There's also Nikai, a swanky bar and lounge. [Photo: Gizelle Lau]

2. Glas Wine Bar

1118 Queen St E, Toronto
ON M4M 1K9, Canada
Glas is a small little wine bar, or really a cave à manger, in the sense that there is great eating to match the great drinking. That's thanks to Danny Pantano, a chef who cooked around some great kitchens in Europe. [Photo: Glas/Facebook]

3. Bent

777 Dundas St W, Toronto
ON M6J 1V1, Canada
(647) 352-0092

This is new the restaurant Susur Lee has opened with his sons Kai and Levi Bent-Lee. It mainly is a showcase for dad's trademark cooking, which is freewheeling but usually rooted in Asia, in what one might call a bistro setting. [Photo: Dine.TO]

4. Edulis

169 Niagara St, Toronto
ON M5V 1C9, Canada
Michael Caballo and his wife Tobey Nemeth, who left Toronto a few years ago after gaining a reputation for making great food, are back at it with Edulis, which might actually be the best thing they've ever been involved in. It's a quaint, welcoming space with food inspired by the European countryside that the Globe and Mail dubbed "pleasure bordering on delirium." [Photo: Edulis]

5. The Grove

1214 Dundas St W, Toronto
ON M6J 1X5, Canada
Back when Grove opened earlier this year, Eater wrote, "The team behind this recently opened Dundas West restaurant hopes to bring the refined, unfussy assuredness of modern British gastropub cooking to Toronto. Considering that the chef Ben Heaton has worked at One and Colborne Lane, it shouldn't be too difficult to pull off." Mission accomplished, considering that nearly all assessments so far have been positive. [Photo: BlogTO]

6. The Oxley Public House
