Four of Canada's Best New Restaurants are on the Prairies

See, we do have great dining here on the prairies. Two of the ten best new restaurants -- as bestowned by writer Chris Johns and enRoute magazine -- were from Alberta. Congrats to The Trought Dining Co at 725B-9th Street in Canmore on its seventh place finish, and Blink Restaurant and Bar in Calgary on its ninth place finish.

Another two prairie restos made the "Next 20" list: Edmonton's Skinny Legs and Cowgirls at 9008 Jasper Avenue and Winnipeg's Oui Bistro and Wine Bar at 283 Bannatyne Avenue, #100.

And yes, Jennifer is a recurring panelist for this list...but she has no say in what gets picked. That's all Chris Johns.

But let's face it, there are probably other great prairie spots that have opened within the last year that could have been tell us about them. Post a comment and start our own prairie-wide list of great new spots for a fine feast.
