The 2014 list of AAA Five Diamond establishments in North America will not include Toqué! for the first time in a long time. Normand Laprise's flagship restaurant had been part of the illustrious group since 2005 but now drops down a notch to Four Diamond status.
Restaurants in Quebec that did snag the AAA Five Diamond stamp of approval for 2014: Le Baccara (Hilton Lac-Leamy, Gatineau) and Quebec City's L'Initiale, La Tanière and Le Patriarche.
