1. Eigensinn Farm, Singhampton, Ont.
More than a restaurant, Eigensinn Farm is a legend among the Ontario gourmand set, owner of a rare five-star rating on Trip Advisor and blanket rave reviews despite a high price ($300 per meal, not including wine) and, in a rural setting two-and-a-half hours away from Toronto, having broken the cardinal rule of the restaurant business: location. Chef Michael Stadtländer’s eight-course dinners are farm-to-table dining epitomized and, according to many, a once-in-a-lifetime experience worth saving up your pennies for.
