Kitchener, ON – YYZ, YTZ
This Southern Ontario city was called Berlin before 1916, and chef Jonathan Gushue cooks modern European dishes like hardwood-grilled beef rump with spaetzle and tomato vinaigrette paired with Belgian-style ale from Nickel Brook. Throwback touches adorn the long dining room, including the massive flag dating back to when Canada had a mere nine provinces. (Gushue hails from the 10th, Newfoundland.) A fluffy nougatine dessert is suffused with sunflower and sesame seeds and topped with tiny white strawberries.
