What impact will this gastronomic recognition have for the city’s economy? Is there already a second guide planned in the near future? The international director of the Michelin Guides, Gwendal Poullennec, answered his questions at the microphone of Nicolas Haddad.

However, this decision is not really a surprise according to the Michelin Guide, given the characteristics that surround Toronto.
” This scene is very diverse, it is a truly cosmopolitan city, and this is what this first selection from the Michelin Guide highlights.
