Dishcrawl Toronto

Dishcrawl brings its social dining experience to Toronto

Dishcrawl is coming to Toronto. The dining equivalent to a pubcrawl, Dishcrawl events allow participants to explore a variety of restaurants in a given neighbourhood over the course of one evening. Cheaper and less time consuming than having full meals at four different restaurants, the idea, says Toronto Dishcrawl organizer Gretchen Newman, "is to connect the people of Toronto with their city through various restaurants — from fine-dining, to local hot-spots."

The kicker is that while the neighbourhoods are revealed prior to the crawl, the featured restaurants remain a mystery until just before the event takes place (though hints as to the identity of the locations are typically given on social media beforehand). I suspect that part of the fun, then, is guessing where it is that you'll end up. The first Toronto dishcrawl takes place in and around Queen West, so I'm already wondering if places like, La Palette, 416 Snackbar and the Bohemian Gastropub are on the docket.

Price-wise, the monthly events come it at what sounds like a very reasonable $39, which covers food but not drink (not surprising). Ultimately the value will depend on what it is that you're served, but from what I've heard, there's plenty of food to go around during the crawl. And, lest one feel sluggish and full, the walk between restaurants should help to keep the blood flowing to areas other than one's stomach.
