Toronto’s annual citywide culinary event, Summerlicious, will be back for its 15th year next month and will feature 200 of the city’s most popular restaurants offering three-course meals.
Reservations are open for the event, which will run from July 7-23, with area restaurants offering a total of 23 prix fixe lunch menus that cost between $18 and $28 and dinner menus priced from $28 to $48.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said in an announcement the event is designed to encourage Torontonians to explore the city’s wide variety of restaurants.
“I encourage Torontonians to get out and explore the diverse cuisine this city offers,” Tory said in the city’s announcement.
This year, 22 new restaurants have signed on for the event, including Cactus Club Cafe, Maple Leaf Tavern, Jamie’s Italian, Mochica, Ricarda’s and TOCA at the Ritz-Carlton.
“Summerlicious is great value for diners and a significant economic boost to the city," Michael Thompson, Ward 37 councillor and Economic Development Committee chair said in the announcement. “Since its inception in 2003, participating restaurants have served 6.5 million meals, generating nearly $290 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry."
