It’s unlikely Winnipeg tops your list of Canada’s most exciting culinary destinations, but the truth is that the food scene in Manitoba’s capital might just be one of the Great White North’s best-kept secrets, making dining at each one of the best restaurants in Winnipeg a very necessary thing to do while in town.
The last decade has ushered in an explosion of chef-driven restaurants in the Peg that could easily go toe-to-toe with some of Vancouver or Toronto’s most celebrated eateries. Some chefs play with cooking styles and ingredients from around the world while others highlight the region’s own culinary heritage and local bounty.
Balancing out these new and hip restaurants are stalwart neighbourhood favourites that have been beloved by locals for decades, as well as convivial gathering places where the wholesome food and inviting environment reflect the city’s famously friendly spirit. Here are the top local eateries.
