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.
