Be the first to try contemporary Indigenous cuisine — the latest dining trend gathering speed in Toronto — and tuck into the season’s best dishes at the hottest new restaurants.

Critically proclaimed a Canadian “East Coast jewel,” New Brunswick is becoming a popular culinary destination, especially in the maritime cities of Saint John and Moncton. Sample the latest excitement at Moncton’s Les Brumes du Coude and 11th Mile in Fredericton, with a focus on local and shareable modern Canadian-Asian fusion.

Segovia Restaurant, Winnipeg
Dine on spring fare at Manitoba’s best eateries

Manitoba restaurateurs are creative, original and resourceful, and refreshingly low-key. They also have the benefit of sourcing much of their fresh ingredients from the back yard of this fertile prairie province. Bite into Korean BBQ, German Jaegerschnitzel, “mountain man burgers” and Arabic manakeesh (flatbread) at these top 10 dining venues around the province.
