5. Sushi-Ya Japan

Milton

Sushi-Ya Japan is a small restaurant serving up big taste in a prime location: downtown Milton. You'll find it just off of Main St., along Martin. You'll see men in suits, depending on the time of day, talking business over maki. Or there may be solo diners who need to get their sushi on, solo. Here you'll find a relaxed spot serving up rolls, teriyaki, noodle dishes, plus Korean specialties (and you may overhear them speaking Korean in the kitchen). Start with miso soup or salad (with miso dressing) and edamame, then fill yourself up on a salmon or tuna combination. It's equal parts simple and delicious. It's a perfect place to eat healthy and stay trendy. This is a classic hidden gem. You're welcome!


4. Tavolo

Oakville

One bite made me forget I was in an outdated shopping mall most frequented by my mom (and other seniors) and students on lunch break. This fried calamari was sublime. Tavolo, a longtime favourite, has been wowing Oakville diners who typically frequent other fabulous restos owned by Catch Hospitality Group. Try flagging a server on a Sunday night — it’s insanely busy. The pizza is phenomenal, too — fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients and that combination of margherita pizza plus salami … it’s heavenly.


3. Borgo Antico

Oakville

The menu is curated and the offerings are fabulous. This cute little downtown Oakville spot opened its doors in October 2016 and is an under-the-radar dining experience when it comes to great Sicilian fare. If you've never been, start with the fried artichokes (incredible!) and order the steak (equally fabulous but keep in mind it's not offered daily since the meat selection is changed up). The resto is casual yet authentic, kid-friendly and - more importantly - offers a solid wine list, plus cocktails and beer. Service is very friendly. You must go.


2. Culaccino Bar & Kitchen

Burlington

This hip Italian bar-slash-gastropub is one of the newest along Brant St., taking over the former Eatalia spot. I found this place while strolling downtown ... the stunning aesthetic caught my eye so I went in to find out more, quickly realizing it's Burlington's best-kept burger secret. Just order The Burger and wait for it to arrive. Take in the glorious horseshoe-shaped bar and industrial light fixtures and wooden chairs with colourful legs. Try not to drool over the food or decor. Decked out between a bun with black-and-white sesame seeds you'll find a thick grilled patty made in-house, like everything on the curated menu. It's wrapped in prosciutto and drowned in melted Gorgonzola and served with frites and house-made ketchup, which tastes so healthy it feels as if I'm eating clean for just a split second. A few bites in, I had to put The Burger down and just nod at it to convey appreciation and respect. The friendly owner, Jerod, and staff work hard to provide a stellar experience. Chase the Spaghetti Carbonara - featuring pasta made in-house, plus double-smoked bacon, garlic, arugula, and parmesan - with suds ... they've got craft beer on beer on beer on beer -- nearly 100 varieties. Cheers!


1. Stone House

They're known for their oysters and steak but we're about to put you onto the Shrimp & Lobster Mac and Cheese. Stone House Restaurant opened in Jan. 2010 and features Mediterranean cuisine, including gourmet thin-crust pizzas, risotto, and pasta dishes. But the mac and cheese .... It's served with fresh tiger shrimp and potato gnocchi in a garlic cream sauce baked with mozzarella, parmesan, and goat cheese ... plus a two-ounce lobster tail. It's accompanied by garlic bread, but you really don't even want it because the entire dish feels so gluttonous and fancy and carb-loaded, however, you'll eat it because it's superb. If you haven't tried it, head to Stone House for the best mac and cheese dish in Burlington!

Price: $29.95
