Posted by Erinn Beth Langille / August 26, 2014

bier markt montrealA number of Toronto restaurants started here but have since opened locations in other cities. We are used to the reverse, patiently waiting for a chain or famous New York entity to put roots in Toronto (Boulud, Momofuku and Vancouver's Guu come to mind), but as this city's food community continues to court fanfare and taste buds to greater and greater acclaim, I think we'll be seeing even more Toronto restaurants branching out nationally and internationally.

Here's a list of 10 Toronto restaurants that have opened locations in other cities.
