Another Mtl vs Toronto kerfuffle

Montreal chef David McMillan was recently quoted as saying Toronto has a better restaurant culture so the cat is among the pigeons now.

I don’t get it. Presumably you can eat well in both cities if you have the money and know where to go. I don’t think anyone even ever said Montreal was the best, if that even means anything. Different cities have different food cultures that arise from their history, their distinctive immigrant profiles, dare I say even their terroir. Or, as Antonio Park is quoted here, “Je ne pense pas que c’est une compétition.”
