5) Antica Osteria

If you’re looking to enjoy a romantic date or a sophisticated dinner, Antica is more than worth a try. This Mayfield Road restaurant pairs warmth and sophistication, wowing guests with a classic wine bar and comforting earthy tones. While a great deal of attention has been paid to the setting, the restaurant is better known for serving fine Italian fare. The resto's website calls attention to the fact that the establishment occupies "one of the most prestigious indoor spaces in Snelgrove" and the enriching ambiance is apparent as soon as you walk in the door. This restaurant is ideal for a special occasion and the menu doesn't disappoint, offering such classics as Gnocchi con Pera e Gorgonzola, Penne alla Vodka, lamb and more. If you want to be wowed, try the homemade gnocchi or any of the tender, succulent veal dishes available on the menu.


4) Toshi Japanese Restaurant

This spot, while not AYCE, provides amazing sushi at a reasonable price. The food is fantastic and could easily compete with any other Peel Region sushi joint for the title of best Japanese in town. Tracing its roots to humble beginnings in the infamous Shopper’s World, this spot sits up top in the same plaza as the crowned king (Queen) of Shawarma at Hurontario and Bovaird. Do yourself a favor and try this place out. Quality over quantity is sometimes key.


3) Churrasquiera Nova Esperanca

This joint won the trophy for best traditional BBQ chicken. This family-owned and operated churrasquiera has a serious dinner rush where lineups to the door are the norm. And can you believe that I was in it out in 15 minutes? This place doesn't fool around. Though white meat is a dollar more expensive, it is so worth it. A quarter chicken combo with white meat provided incredibly juicy chicken and an ideal texture on the outside with a nice saltiness to the skin that had the right amount of crispiness. Go here if you want your BBQ chicken done right and if you're a piri piri sauce connoisseur.


2) Nova Grill and Bakery

Sweets, hot meals, alcohol, lots of space, TVs, Nova Grill and Bakery has it all. You've probably seen Nova Grill and Bakery locations around the GTA, but this is one of the few that offers cooked meals. The quarter chicken meal is tied for the cheapest meal on the list, advertised at $6.99 in store. A huge perk is the variety of sides to choose from. Stick with your roasted potatoes and rice, or grab some steamed vegetables, rapini, small baked potatoes (with the skin) instead. And believe me, the list does go on. The chicken is done well and doesn't venture far from traditional Portuguese tradition with juicy meat and a crispy-ish skin with mild or hot piri piri sauce on the side or slathered on. Come to the restaurant/bakery for a get together with family or friends and I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed. Even if you don't get the chicken.


1) Henry's

Although you might not think “poutine” when you hit a fish and chips place, these joints often offer fantastic fry-cheese-gravy concoctions. This classic fish and chips spot is one of the best in the city, and it also serves up a great poutine! Henry's Fish and Chips, located in a plaza by Main and Vodden, has a poutine that doesn’t disappoint. As you can tell by the picture, it comes with a plate full of fries and they use real cheese curds—which was a real plus. The gravy was super flavourful and the classic poutine taste of fries, cheese and gravy worked magically in every bite.
