MONTREAL, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than a decade, enRoute has been combing the country for Canada's Best New Restaurants, offering readers a mouth-watering snapshot of the country's culinary scene as it evolves. In 2012, food journalist Sarah Musgrave once again ate her way across Canada on a month-long journey, dining anonymously wherever she landed. More than 250 dishes later, it was clear: the year belonged to Toronto, which nabbed an unprecedented 6 of the 10 spots on the list. "With a flurry of lease signings and exhaust-fan installations, the city's dining scene is on fire," she writes in enRoute's November issue. The most respected and hotly anticipated restaurant list, this year's results were inspiring and solidly staked out Canada's spot in the international culinary scene.
