Where Canada’s Best New Restaurants is an annual award program that recognizes the top new dining destinations across the country. Where magazine’s editors deliberate at the end of each year to nominate an outstanding restaurant from their region.

This year’s selection celebrates cozy cuisine—like Prairie 360, Where Winnipeg’s pick, offering a curated mix of wild game and locally-sourced ingredients; or Tavern 1883, nominated by Where Canadian Rockies, that serves up “proper Canadian comfort food” in a charming mountain cabin atmosphere. Creative Italian fare is also in the spotlight—Bufala, selected by Where Vancouver, serves up down-to-earth rustic fare while Bar Buca, Where Toronto’s pick, showcases around 30 perfect-for-grazing small plates. Together, these restaurants and 6 more, represent the top 10 new restaurants in Canada in 2014.
