joe beef Canada's 100 best restaurants list

25 Montreal restaurants appear on Canada’s 100 Best list for 2020

Joe Beef’s again ranked highest in the city.

Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants list is back and it includes 25 Montreal restaurants. Once again, Joe Beef has beaten Toqué! as the highest rated Montreal restaurant. From 2015 to 2016, Toqué! occupied the top spot in Canada, however Toronto restaurant Alo has been ranked #1 ever since. Vancouver’s St. Lawrence is #2 this year.

According to their website, the Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants list is “based on a poll of our national panel of 103 judges, who each submitted a ranked list of their top 10 dining experiences of 2019.” The website also shared best wishes to the restaurants that are reopening. “Canada’s 100 Best wishes all of you good luck and good health negotiating the difficult road ahead, and we dearly hope to dine again with you soon.”
