Air Canada has released its top 30 best new restaurants for 2017 and seven of them are from Alberta.
This year’s finalists celebrate “the delectable diversity that is Canadian cuisine,” the company said in a news release.
The airline listed the nominees for Canada’s Best New Restaurants Wednesday, in partnership with American Express. Restaurants are selected after one writer is sent on an anonymous month-long dining trip from coast to coast to determine the most notable new openings, based on the recommendations from a panel of food experts.
Here is a full list of the nominated new restaurants:
Mak N Ming, Vancouver
The Salted Vine, Squamish
Alder Room, Edmonton
Café Linnea, Edmonton
Deane House, Calgary
Bar Von Der Fels, Calgary
Clementine Cafe, Winnipeg

“Air Canada is proud to support the ingenious chefs and restaurateurs that help form Canada’s culinary culture,” said Andy Shibata, managing director with Air Canada. “By highlighting their achievements online and in our magazine Air Canada enRoute, we are committed to discovering and supporting memorable travel and dining destinations across Canada.”
The annual Top 10 ranking will be unveiled at a gala event in Toronto and on CanadasBestNewRestaurants.com on Oct. 19, 2017. The final 10 will also be showcased in the November issue of Air Canada enRoute magazine.
