Toronto, Jul 16 (Canadian-Media): Delicious meals of Summerlicious, produced by the City of Toronto, at some of Toronto's favourite restaurants can be enjoyed during the final week, media reports said.
Summerlicious offers three-course, prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at exceptional value until July 22.
Mouth-watering meals with lunch menus priced at $23, $28 and $33 and dinner menus priced at $33, $43 and $53 are being served this year by 200 Toronto restaurants.
The list of participating restaurants and menus is available at http://www.toronto.ca/summerlicious. Visitors to the website can locate and sort restaurants by price, neighbourhood and cuisine.
"Summerlicious is one of the city's most popular annual events," said Toronto Mayor John Tory. "With 200 participating restaurants to choose from, and a week to go until this year's Summerlicious is over, there is still time to enjoy this opportunity to try something new."
"Summerlicious is a special opportunity for people to experience the breadth and depth of the city's extraordinary, diverse cuisine," said Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the City's Economic Development Committee. "By bringing more people to the table across the city, the program has generated over $311 million for the local restaurant industry."
Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made directly with the participating restaurants with reservation availability updated daily at the Today's Reservations tab on the Summerlicious webpage: https://bit.ly/2L09pan.
Summerlicious can be followed on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/LiciousTO, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/LiciousTO and on Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/LiciousTO. The event hashtag is #LiciousTO.
The Summerlicious and Winterlicious programs are produced by the City of Toronto. In order to boost Toronto's restaurant industry during typically slow periods of business, the Licious programs began in 2003.
Since then over seven million meals have been served by participating restaurants during the promotion which have generated more than $311 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry.
The Licious programs were ranked in the top three all-time favourite festivals, fairs and events in Field Day's sixth annual Toronto entertainment survey.
