Drum roll please: it's time to launch the inaugural Toronto Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This highly elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck. Every few months, we'll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game. Think of this as the beginning of an ever-evolving and exciting glimpse into the food scene in Toronto.
The Eater 38 is in no particular order.
For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favourite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to leave your thoughts in the comments? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or in the tipline And don't forget to check out the Eater Heatmap too, which lists what's new and hot in the city - and is updated monthly.
