MONTREAL — Renowned chef Michael Stadtländer is back in familiar territory atop best restaurant lists. His newest venture, Haisai Restaurant and Bakery in rural Singhamton Ont., was recently named Canada’s Best New Restaurant in Air Canada’s enRoute magazine.
“Dinner here is a fairy tale, the kind with a very happy ending,” writes Sarah Musgrave of the seasonal regional restaurant, which has topped the wish list of many Ontario foodies, since opening in 2009.
Rounding out the list’s top ten are: Bao Bei, Vancouver; Cava, Montreal; Local Kitchen & Wine Bar, Toronto; Stone Soup Inn, Cowichan Valley, B.C.; Charcut Roast House, Calgary; Quatrefoil, Dundas, Ont.; EdGe, Sooke, B.C.; Buca, Toronto; Le Quartier Général, Montreal.
