Let’s hear it for Food & Wine Magazine! In their latest issue, they cite their 100 Best New Food & Drink Experiences, and throw a little love to beer and the Ontario capital in so doing.
First, the beer love:
61. Under the heading “Breakfast Twists,” the magazine delivers deserved accolades to the tasty Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Imagine what they might have written had they tasted Canadian Breakfast!
88 – 90. Under “Beer Innovators,” the magazine shines the spotlight on Baird Brewing in Tokyo, Brasserie 4:20 in Rome and the new Moerder Lambic bar in Brussels. The last in particular has me still contemplating a visit to Belgium for the sole purpose of drinking there!
And now, Toronto:
3. Yes, you read that right, number 3 in the list is Toronto’s secret dining club, Charlie’s Burgers. And based on the lone Charlie’s meal I’ve been privileged enough to enjoy, it is indeed a deserved position of honour.
86. In the “Innovative New Bars” section, F&W gives a shout out to our own Frankie Solarik (pictured right) and Barchef, the coolest bar and bartender in central Canada.
Congrats to all!
