Chew

In an industry marked by lavish trends and costly overheads, the small 21-seat dining room at chew seems a deliberate act of rebellion. In fact, everything from its strip mall spot located off the quiet end of Corydon, to the appearance of off-cuts peppered throughout the menu is, in its own way, quietly radical.

532 Waterloo St, 204-667-2439

Carnaval Brazilian BBQ

A nose knows how to find this churrasco style steakhouse; simply follow the wafting aroma of charcoal caressed beef. Carnaval has added a new dimension to interactive eating in Winnipeg.

270 Waterfront Drive, 204-505-0945

Fitzroy

Aptly named for a working class, ethnically diverse neighbourhood of Melbourne, Fitzroy feels right at home among the comparably eclectic culture of Sherbrook Street, even riffing off hearty blue collar staples like salt beef with city rye.

102 Sherbrook St, 204-504-6945.

Mano A Mano

In October, the restaurant took up with old flame, Chef Dustin Pajak. His refined rustic menu reveals a trusting relationship between restaurateur and chef. It’s an exciting-to-read culinary narrative with a clear voice.

691 Corydon Ave, 204-414-6305.

Market Burger

In a banner burger year Market Burger opened, taking on the challenge of a popular dish that had already been reimagined countless times over. To venture into burgerland, particularly in a town weaned on chili-smothered fat boys, is brave. To emerge, with a unique offering that adds a new dimension to this city’s flush and storied burger scene, is remarkable.

645 Corydon Ave, 204-505-2510
