Winterlicious, now in map format

Posted by Staff / January 29, 2013

WinterliciousThe 2013 edition of Winterlicious continues for another ten days and just in time for Toronto's annual foodie frenzie comes a new web site hacked together as a side project by a couple of developers. Behold The 'Licious Map, a map-based web site that plots all the restaurants serving up Winterlicious deals. The restaurants can be easily sorted by meal type (dinner or lunch), price range, location, ratings and other options like vegetarian/vegan, accessibility or whether the kitchen sources food from local suppliers.

The site was created by Jonathan Ng, a Computer Engineering student from the University of Toronto, and his friend Godfrey Chan who is a CompSci graduate from SFU. They previously created a similar map for the DineOut event in Vancouver.

What do you think? Is this something you would use?

It's a great idea, but it only seems to search restaurants when I enter downtown. If I enter any other neighbourhood it doesn't seem to work.

Hey Ruby!

Thanks for trying The 'Licious Map! We appreciate your feedback. We are working on something to address this right now and hope to have something out soon.
