It’s been a long time in the works, but the MICHELIN Guide is coming to Toronto this fall. The big announcement was made at a gala May 10th at the Four Seasons with politicians, tourism and culinary leaders celebrating the city’s achievement.
“For the first time in its history, the MICHELIN Guide lands in Canada, and our inspectors are excited to experience the impressive culinary landscape of Toronto,” said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides. “This first selection for Canada’s largest city, and our first in the country, will represent the local flavors, international inspiration, and distinct creativity that makes Toronto’s dining scene world-class.”
“Toronto’s culinary scene is as diverse as the city itself, and the MICHELIN Guide Toronto is the perfect way to celebrate our culinary community,” said Scott Beck, President & CEO of Destination Toronto. “It will be a powerful way to share our culinary capabilities with new audiences from around the world. We’re so proud to partner with Michelin and our destination partners Destination Ontario and Destination Canada, to bring the MICHELIN Guide to Canada for the first time.”
We’re thrilled to see MICHELIN recognize one of the world’s great culinary destinations and can’t wait to show off our city on an upcoming episode of Going Global in Toronto. Stay tuned for more details.
