Toronto is a true food and drinks city where an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs and food trucks can all succeed together. We have so many great options to choose from because of our ever-evolving multiethnic neighbourhoods and a range of personal dietary preferences.

But Toronto’s scene also benefits from the guts and vision it takes for each business to serve our trending tastes. The NOW Readers’ Choice poll gives you a chance to make sure your picks are recognized for their efforts. Don’t miss your chance to support them!
