TORONTO — OpenTable has announced its list of Canada’s Top 50 Best Restaurants with Vegetarian Options in an effort to connect vegetarian diners with top restaurants across the country.
Ontario led the way with 26 restaurants featured, following by B.C. and Alberta with seven each. Quebec (five), Atlantic Canada (four) and Manitoba (one) also have establishments in the top 50.
“There’s a real change in the dining industry in that vegetarian options are an increasingly standard part of menu planning. There are many incredible restaurants with diverse plant-based options, but without insider knowledge, it can be challenging and time consuming to find them,” says Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. We are excited to share this list, showcasing Canada’s gastronomic and multicultural diversity in our vegetarian restaurants from coast to coast.”
According to studies conducted by Dalhousie University, the number of vegetarians in Canada has grown from 900,000 to 2.3 million over the past 15 years.
The Canada’s 50 Best Restaurants with Vegetarian Options list was generated from more than 550,000 restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between Sept. 1, 2017 and Aug. 31, 2018.
