Totally bizarre list. Cute effort, though. Stiff reminder of how few restaurants the country has with an international footprint, especially outside of Montreal.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Come on, this isn't a top 100 list.

If l'Abbatoir is one of the 10 best restaurants in the country, Canada is in trouble. If I'd stopped after my appetizer, I might have found it a plausible idea, but it was all downhill from there. The sweetbreads mentioned in the blurb were terrible.
It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

It looks like a list of places cobbled together from magazine clippings, odd blog posts, and yelp reviews.
Jazz is musical improvisation; it is the art of the moment. In the recording of jazz, the inspiration and inventiveness of this moment is made permanent by technology, giving pleasure many years after the performance.

Photography is jazz for the eye. - William Claxton

That list is absolutely depressing and absolute bullshit with respect to the Vancouver locations. There are few that I would definitely recommend, but most I would advise people to stay away from. I hate bullshit like this.

We could do better with a cocktail napkin and a few pints of St. Amboise, no doubt.
