Explore The Best Toronto Restaurants at Winterlicious 2012

Foodies, start your engines. Winterlicious Toronto turns 10 this year. The Winterlicious Prix Fixe Promotion and the Culinary Events Series run from January 27 to February 9, 2012. It’s your opportunity to test drive a selection of Toronto’s outstanding restaurants with 175 of them offering three-course prix fixe menus for lunch or dinner. Lunch menus are priced at $15, $20 and $25 and dinner is priced at $25, $35 and $45.

Kids at Winterlicious Toronto: Should You?

The short answer is yes, but remember it’s not always about the kids. Why not explore the city’s broad variety of participating restaurants by planning both a date night and a family night? First, book a babysitter for a night of mouth-watering cuisine at one of Toronto’s finest restaurants. You know you’ve always wanted to go and now you can take advantage of great prices with the prix fixe menu.  Once you’ve treated yourself, it’s time to take the kids for a day on the town. Start with a morning or afternoon skate at Harbourfront or City Hall, followed by a special lunch or early dinner. They’ll be talking about it for ages.

Kid-Friendly Toronto Restaurants

In Toronto, we’re lucky to have lots of family friendly restaurants. We made a few phone calls and found restaurants across the city that will welcome your children during Winterlicious and all year long. Many have kids’ menus and all are willing to accommodate junior foodies.

Culinary Events Series

You’ve had your date night and your family night, how about a girls’ night? The Winterlicious Culinary Events Series features gastronomic events at some of Toronto’s finest restaurants and venues. Choose from eleven delicious foodie adventures celebrating Toronto’s diverse cuisine. You decide how you want to spend the evening. Indulge in a Chocolate Lovers’ Feast, relax and savour a three-course meal prepared by one of the Calphalon Culinary Centre’s certified chef instructors or get your hands dirty at a pasta-making workshop with Mama Rosa, chef and owner of 7 Numbers.

  1. I like the idea of a two-pronged approach. I honestly never thought about taking the kids to Winterlicious. Thanks!

  2. My kids love going to restaurants and I’m not a big fan of kiddie food, so I often call places that I’d like to go to see if they welcome kids. You’d be surprised how many do!
