enRoute, Air Canada's award-winning in-flight magazine, has for more than a decade published an influential annual ranking of Canada's top 10 new restaurants.

In 2016, I ate my way across Canada for a fourth time, hitting up more than 30 new restaurant recommended by enRoute's panel of food-world insiders. A Japanese-Italian fusion joint called Kissa Tanto earned Vancouver the numero uno spot in my eventual Top 10 rankings. The rest of the list featured awesome new restaurants in BC, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and PEI. Anne of Green Gables would be proud.

The print feature appeared in enRoute's November 2016 issue, and in June of 2017 I defended my National Magazine Award title by once again winning Gold in the category "Service Journalism." Click here to read the full story online.
