[xtypo_dropcap]B[/xtypo_dropcap]ack in shape from the extra goodies this holiday season? Well, don’t put the treadmill away yet because it’s time for some delicious gourmet food! Winterlicious will be back in town this Jan. 28 to Feb. 10 as 150 of Toronto’s finest restaurants welcome visitors to experience their cuisine through the ever-popular three-course prix-fixe menu options (includes starter, entrée, and dessert). Prices vary according to restaurants but have been set to either of the following:
Lunch: $15, $20 or $25
Dinner: $25, $35 and $45
The list of participating restaurants can be found on the City of Toronto website: toronto.ca/special_events/. Note that restaurants may feature either lunch or dinner, or both, and drinks, tax, and gratuity are not included. It is also recommended to book in advance to ensure space.
The most fascinating side of Winterlicious, however, might just be its 14 culinary events, gourmet experiences custom-designed to entice all senses.
The themes this year include historical treats at the Campbell House, Casa Loma, Fort York, and Todmorden Mills Heritage site; multicultural experiences featuring Brazilian, Chinese, Indian, and Spanish cuisine flavours, as well as special rendezvous with expert chefs, wine experts, and brewers.
Prices vary and can be found on the City of Toronto website as well. Be warned, these tend to sell out fast.
