Address: 3426, rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal, QC
Tropikàl was ranked the "Best Trailblazer" out of all new Canadian restaurants that opened this year — and it's the only Montreal spot to have made the list! As a restaurant that celebrates Caribbean, Afro-Latin and West African history, the ranking states that you can feel "a carnival-like energy that resonates in chef Jae-Anthony Dougan's cooking." Plus, it's got a stacked cocktail menu, which you can never go wrong with.
Bika Farm and Cuisine
Address: 980, ch. du Grand-Bernier, Saint-Blaise-sur-Richelieu, QC
If you're constantly searching for places that use only the freshest of produce, Bika Farm and Cuisine is your spot. Ranked "Best Farm-to-Table," the dinners made by Chef Fisun Ercan's are inspired by cuisine from the Turkish Aegean coast.
Les Jardins Lakou
Address: 4141b, ch. Selby, Dunham, QC
Haitian-Canadian Jean-Philippe Vézina won "Grower of the Year" in Air Canada and OpenTable's best new restaurants ranking. His farm, Les Jardins Lakou, may not exactly be a restaurant, but it offers weekly vegetable baskets that include jicama, sweet potato, giraumon (turban squash), amaranth, okra, collard greens and African spinach, so you can make your own fresh and delicious meals at home.
