Throwback dining experiences are becoming increasingly rare in Markham, but this steakhouse is still going strong since its founding in 1978. Much of a meal can happen tableside, from the tossing of the Caesar salad and carving of the chateaubriand to the tableside flambe of cherries jubilee and a tableside pour of Spanish coffee. The aged prime steaks are delicious!
Any list of fine dining in Markham would not be complete without Peters!

Providential 9 is the only Chinese Restaurant that offers authentically traditional, premium, and seasonally-inspired Yue Cuisine.
This place nails higher-end Cantonese-style dim sum, impeccably crafting standards and plating them as feasts for the eyes (and IG posts). Diners come for the signature red rice rolls filled with crispy shrimp, but they stay for an array of items that’ll make your head spin like a Lazy Susan — crispy cuttlefish, deep-fried pumpkin and okra in egg yolk, and spareribs with taro and olive, to name a few. Sweet selections like the unreal Cantonese sponge cake and sesame balls in salty egg yolk only add to the experience.

The Old Chengdu design is jaw-dropping at this two-story paean to hot pot, as are the myriad protein, vegetable, noodle, sauce, and condiment options. The all-you-can-eat format includes a massive buffet station where you can pick items to cook in one of four available bases: tomato soup, stewed mushroom and bones, spicy sour fish, and xiangzi spicy soup (or a combination of any two). Among the more than 300 ingredients are lamb tripe, beef balls, Spam, quail eggs, and pork blood tofu, as well as sesame oil imported from China and seasonings flown in from Sichuan. There’s also a hot table with dozens of cooked sides and small desserts. Premium ingredient upgrades include lobster, crab, scallops, marble beef cubes, and more. Getting messy here is a given, so don’t wear white or, if you do, get a complimentary apron.

Pivoting to become one of the largest outdoor dim sum dining spots in the GTA certainly helped this bastion of high-end dining during the pandemic, but its success is really due to the legions of dim summers who come back again and again for 88’s classy renditions of standards. Honestly, you won’t find a clunker on the menu, so go ahead and try a dish you haven’t had before: braised duck feet and wings with chestnuts, spicy deep-fried chicken knuckle, or pumpkin and sweet corn congee (get the youtiao to enjoy with it). Best of all, its dim sum is available in a frozen format for takeout, including shrimp har gow and chiu chow chicken dumplings. Beyond dim sum, you can indulge at dinner with a menu of live seafood. Hong Kong-style crab, anyone?
