Best Small Plates Restaurants 2011

May 1, 2011

Bao Bei

163 Keefer St.

Fascinating newcomer Bao Bei (Gold), winner of Best New Restaurant and Best New Design, scores again in this category for dishing up addictive and inventive offerings in a Chinese brasserie style. “They give us all the elements that small plates should: surprising, fun, interesting items,” explained one judge. Chef Gord Martin’s two Bins (Davie Street’s 941 and South Granville’s 942) took Silver for their consistently strong “tapastisers” (just-so Kobe beef meatballs and miniature plates of duck confit). And the always-reliable (if slightly staid) Cru took Bronze for its undeniable workmanship and quality ingredients. Honourable mentions this year to Kingyo and Judas Goat.
