1 Bur­dock and Co. 2702 Main St., bur­dockandco.com 2 Bel­gard Kitchen 55 Dunlevy Ave., bel­gar­d­kitchen.com 3 Mer­chant’s Work­shop 1590 Com­mer­cial Dr., mer­chantswork­shop.ca hon­ourable men­tions j Café Me­d­ina, Au Comp­toir We’re will­ing to stand in the rain for it, so of course it de­serves its own cat­e­gory. Bur­dock and Co. leads the fray thanks to its small but eclec­tic group of dishes. Crispy fried chicken with dill pickle mayo and a poached egg is some­thing our judges swooned over. Yes, there’s av­o­cado toast at Sil­ver sur­prise Bel­gard

Kitchen, but there’s also the in­fa­mous Bel­gard ba­con, a skil­let siz­zler of maple-bour­bon pork belly with maple caramel. We dare you not to drool. And Mer­chant’s Work­shop more than earned its Bronze for chef/owner Doug Stephen’s clean yet com­fort­ing fare (hot chicken FTW).

We change the name of this cat­e­gory every year— it’s been Bak­ery, it’s been Last Course—but Thomas Haas just keeps win­ning it.
