Canada’s 100 Best announced its 2024 list of top dining destinations in the country today (13 May 2024). The annual publication, led by Editor-in-Chief Jacob Richler, showcases Canada’s best places to dine, selected by a team of 150 judges comprising culinary enthusiasts, food writers, critics, chefs, restaurateurs, and other food service professionals.

Montreal’s Mon Lapin once again took the coveted top spot, and Ontario and Quebec dominate the list (Ontario leads with 31 top restaurants, and Quebec follows closely with 29). However, as a proud British Columbian, I can’t help but note that—though Toronto has serious game, and it’s hard to argue that Montreal is anything other than the coolest city in Canada with one of the most vibrant food scenes to match—on a per capita basis, 20 establishments on the list put BC out in front.

The full 2024 list, including Best New Restaurants and 50 Best Bars, can be found below. See the 2024 list (BC in blue) followed by links and a map for British Columbia winners, or visit the 100 Best website here. Congratulations to all.

Reverence, Respect, and Realization: What The Acorn Taught Me

At 21 years old, I'm still just a kid and relatively new to working in restaurants, but I grew up umbilically tied to the hospitality industry. My father was a food writer, and my mother is a photographer. Their careers meant that most of my early years were spent in kitchens and dining rooms instead of on playgrounds and soccer fields; consequently, I learned my table manners before I could count past one hundred.
