So it's about that time of year when food gods and goddesses (or simply put restaurant owners/chefs/etc.) make it possible to experience some of Toronto's best restaurants at a fraction of the cost. From January 27 to February 9, 2012 you will be able to enjoy a fantastic lunch or dinner at one of these restaurants without hurting your wallet. Winterlicious is an opportunity! It is a chance to enjoy a 3 course prix fixe menu for either lunch or dinner from $15 to $45 dollars per person not including drinks, taxes or gratuity. Lunches are $15, $20 or $25 depending on the restaurant. Dinners range from $25, $35 or $45 again depending on which establishment you pick. Along with the prix fixe menu offered at 175 of Toronto's best restaurants, there are also several culinary events planned which you can enjoy. These events range from $38 for Guilty Pleasures (described as Toronto's favourite fashion brunch) up to $125 for such events as Decanting the Castle: Myths Uncorked (a wine pairing event at Casa Loma).
Tickets for the culinary events are already on sale. Ticket information is available on the Winterlicious site. Reservations for the prix fixe lunch or dinners will begin being taken on January 12, 2012. Again the phone information is available on the website. So click on the Winterlicious Restaurant List 2012 and get started thinking about where you want to eat during this event.
Don't miss your chance to take part and truly enjoy a food experience within reach at a place that may not be...
In her opinion:
Do it! Oh, you so want to do it! It is worth it. We have been going for several years since we first heard about it on CityNews and we have never regretted it! Enjoy!!!
In his opinion:
There is no better chance to taste culinary excellence at a fraction of the cost. Whether you like restaurants that are trendy, fine dining, ethnic, seafood or steakhouses; there is a selection for every taste. It's a great way to indulge without breaking the bank.
Currently, in its 10th year (wow ten years already?), Winterlicious grows every year in popularity and more restaurants are added in each edition. I can personally attest that this is my favourite time of the year, aside from Summerlicious (more on that later in the year). Go on and make reservations to some of the best restaurants in Toronto and "preview" them at a fixed price (prix fixe). January 12th........book it on your calendars.
