It’s a new year, and while we tend to make a lot of resolutions around this time of year, one resolution we can all keep is supporting the restaurants we love — and discovering new ones to love, too. Maybe that involves feasting on crisp adobo pork rice-stuffed pig’s trotter at the new Sarap Filipino Bistro, or trying out some decadent salumi and hand-rolled pasta at Manteca. Or maybe it’s rediscovering favourites, like ordering a Martini at Cafe Deco and reacquainting yourself with the Dexter cheeseburger at The Plimsoll. Whatever you resolve to do — and wherever you resolve to eat in this new year — our January Hit List has you covered.
Note: Be sure to check in on wherever you’re headed (a restaurant’s Instagram account is always a good start). And if you’d prefer to do your dining outdoors this winter, may we suggest this handy guide. Right this way.
