Edmonton's Best Restaurants 2012

Loosen your belts as Avenue takes you inside the best places to dine.

To determine the city’s best restaurants in 10 categories we, the editors, teamed up with three experts: chef Gail Hall, who also hunted down and wrote our 25 Best Things to EatTwyla Campbell, restaurant reviewer for CBC Radio One’s Edmonton AM; and Jennifer Cockrall-King, author of Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution.

Together we lobbied, debated, tasted, re-tasted, judged (first the food, then each other) and then debated some more. We believe the result is a comprehensive and fair representation of the most exciting restaurants in the city. Click the following categories to find out the top three restaurants in each title.
