TORONTO — Air Canada’s EnRoute magazine editors are preparing to award the Best New Restaurants 2014 People’s Choice Award. Canadians can visit eatandvote.com to vote for their favourite restaurant.
The magazine seeks out new restaurants launched during the past year that advance the Canadian culinary identity. They are places where the overall dining experience will have a lasting and significant impact on restaurant culture.

The nominees by city are:
