Best Restaurant

Gold Winner Brooklyn Warehouse

Silver Winner The Bicycle Thief

Bronze Winner The Wooden Monkey, Halifax

“For us, it’s all tethered to that wholesome meal you’d have at your grandmother’s house,” says Brooklyn’s George Christakos. He’s talking about his grandmother, Georgia, but he’s talking about yours, too. After seven years, and four consecutive Best Restaurant wins, the old-world dining experience is still a core value for Brooklyn Warehouse. But that’s not to say its not constantly evolving. “My father brings it back in to perspective,” says Christakos of his business parter Leo. “He says ‘If there’s one thing we do here, it’s change.’” Just last year Brooklyn made a big move to do away with the same ol’ offerings when it debuted its daily-changing chalkboard menu, meaning lovers of the restaurant aren’t just coming in just for a specific favourite, but for the reliably great experience. “I’m really, really proud of the food that we put out,” says Christakos. “I really trust Mark and the team in the kitchen.”
