Paul and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago and we celebrated by having a few lunches during Summerlicious.
For those outside Toronto, Summerlicious (and Winterlicious) are two food festivals held every year here in Toronto. Winterlicious runs during the first two weeks of February while Summerlicious occurs at the start of July (both typically slow times for restaurants). During both these events major restaurants across the city offer a limited menu of prix fixe lunches and dinners at a discount from typical prices. Currently the prices are $15, $20 or $25 for lunch and $25, $35 or $45 for dinner, with drinks and tips not included.
Some restaurants book up really quickly, but Paul and I don't generally choose a place based on popularity, but we go based on the menu. Plus, this year, we decided to try places that were in our neighbourhood.
I don't normally review restaurants here on kitchen frolic, but I wanted to share a recap of the places we tried and the menu items we ate. Watch for my recaps over the next few days! :)
