Gold Winner Mezza Lebanese Kitchen, downtown

Silver Winner Tarek’s Cafe

Bronze Winner Ray's Lebanese, Bayers Lake

Tony and Peter Nahas’ growing chain of quick and healthy Middle Eastern eats encourages diners to “eat like you’re family”, and if this is how the Nahas family eats—we want in. Mezza gets its crown back after a slight interruption from silver winner, the also tasty Tarek’s Cafe, but its not because anything’s changed. The consistent Hall of Fame worthy shawarma and platters starring souvlaki, falafel, donairs and veggie-friendly delights beckon from locations across town, but Barrington Street tops them all. Probably for its role in beating the downtown lunch rush, and offering respite and re fueling for weary club-goers at 2am.

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
