All November long we asked locals about their favourite everything in town. And all year long we’ve been hearing about what a foodie’s paradise St. John’s is becoming. So who are your favourite old-timers and upstarts keeping us in delectable dining? Your top 10 answers are below.

You’ll have to pick up a copy of December’s “People’s Choice Awards” themed issue to see who took gold in this, and 100 other categories. Was it the farm-to-table freshness and flare of a Todd Perrin or Jeremy Charles establishment (Mallard Cottage, The Merchant Tavern, Raymonds)?

The second-to-none sushi’n’steak at Basho? The best Indian Food in Atlantic Canada down at india Gate? The first-rate fish tacos at Adelaide? Were we floored by Chinched’s charcuterie board? Will it be the newly reformed Reluctant Chef, or city staple The Sprout? Maybe it’ll be an obvious win: Raymonds.

Not tellin’ ’till next week. For now, why not treat yourself to one of these fine establishments while you wait. The people have spoken, have you tried them all? Here Are St. John’s Favorite Ten Food Havens:
