The “farm” in Eigensinn Farm is not a term of endearment, but the real thing. One must travel out of the city to find this real working farm, with whimsical sculptures scattered throughout its open fields. Homemade preserves, vegetables pulled from the garden right outside served in several perfectly executed courses— this is Canadian dining in all its glory. The true definition of local, those ribs you’re eating came from an animal that was grazing outside just days ago. One of the top restaurants in North America, the once-in-a-lifetime experience of dinner at Eigensinn Farm is worth all its bragging rights. Be warned that the trek to chef Michael Stadtländer’s farm is about two hours from Toronto, and the cost is $300 per person. Reservations must be made well in advance, as they seat only twelve per night on the few nights that they are open each week. There’s no corkage fee, so bring your own wine.
