FOR 2023 OUR VOTING PROCEDURES HAVE RETURNED TO THEIR PRE-PANDEMIC NORMS. We added 20 new judges to arrive at a new high of 130. Our judging panel is a balanced mix of informed culinary enthusiasts, food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and other food service professionals. Their number in each province and region is proportional to the population. Judges were asked to vote for restaurants based on the complete dining experience provided – service, decor, the depth of the cellar and, above all else, food quality. Unlike last year, takeout was thankfully dropped from the list of judging considerations. And now that everyone is happily doing it again, travel was reinstated as a judging requirement: each judge must vote for a minimum of three restaurants outside of their home region. Many tabulations later, the resulting list is an accurate measure of which restaurants excelled in 2022, which makes them great dining choices today. C100B congratulates all of the restaurants for their exceptional work. And we look forward to visiting again very soon.
