It might be one of the most-talked-about fine dining experiences in town. It might be a family-owned hole in the wall. It might be the one place in town that recreates your favourite dish so well that it reminds you of your childhood.

Every person in Edmonton has a favourite restaurant.

And that’s true of our panel of food experts, too. This year's judges include the Avenue staff and food experts Twyla Campbell, Tina Faiz, Gail Hall and Omar Mouallem. After much tasting and debate, we added up the scores — and we present our second annual list of Best Restaurants.

We feature the five restaurants we feel are the best in the city, plus 16 other categories, from best brunch to best food truck. 

We encourage you to try as many as you can — maybe you’ll discover a new favourite!
