20 restaurants to eat at during Winterlicious 2014

Posted by Liora Ipsum / January 16, 2014

Winterlicious restaurants 2014Winterlicious 2014 doesn't kick off until January 31st, but the real frenzy begins today as restaurants start booking tables for the 12th year of the citywide prix fixe food festival. Along with many repeat restaurants, this year's roster of participants includes a slew of notable first-timers ready to shake things up.

Here's a rundown of what to expect from Winterlicious 2014.

HOW IT WORKS

This year sees 210 restaurants on the Winterlicious roster (up from last year's 191 participants), who will offer three-course prix fixe meals for lunch (priced at $15, $20 or $25) and dinner (which comes in at $25, $35 or $45). Dinner reservations are imperative, especially for the most popular restaurants, though it's easier to snag a last minute table at lunch hour. Although facilitated by the City of Toronto, each restaurant handles bookings directly and must be contacted independently or booked via OpenTable (when available).

NEW THIS YEAR

There are 24 new participants this year, of which a few are particularly noteworthy. They include the following:

HOT TICKETS

Considering usual prices and popularity, these are the places you might want make reservations at pronto.

OLD FAVOURITES

Glad to see these well seasoned participants return for another year.

VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN OPTIONS

Meatless eaters can partake in the prix fixe program too. Here some of the better vegetarian/vegan-friendly options.

CHEAP BUT GOOD

Here are some top picks in the most reasonable Winterlicious price range of $15/$25 (for lunch and dinner, respectively).

EVENTS

The Winterlicious Culinary Event Series offers delicious interactive food experiences designed to educated and indulge. Tickets have been on sale for over a month.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from
that service? Bless you!

Don't forget to tip well! Remember that most restaurants don't already do multiple courses for their meals so your servers are doing 3-5 times the work for the 15% of a cheap price! Sincerely, a very tired server.

Everyone knows and enjoys Disney and their wonderful products.
Lady Gaga is good, but would she have been as well-known if she didn't wear all those crazy outfits' Take a leaf out of her book, your Facebook Fan page can look like Lady Gaga - if that's suitable to your enterprise and turn into 1 of the best web sites on Facebook.
