The City of Toronto and its partners are thrilled to announce the return of Summerlicious, one of Toronto’s most beloved summer experiences that provides residents and visitors an opportunity to explore the city’s diverse culinary landscape.

Earlier today, Mayor Olivia Chow and Councillor Nick Mantas (Scarborough-Agincourt) celebrated the return of the popular program at Ye Skewers Hot Pot in Scarborough.

From Friday, July 5 to Sunday, July 21, the City is encouraging residents to get together with friends and family to enjoy a three-course prix fixe menu at more than 200 restaurants across the city. Menus are available at price points ranging from $20 to $55 for lunch and $55 to $75 for dinner.

Reservations are now open for the prix fixe menu at participating restaurants. While not required, reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made by contacting the restaurants directly.

This year’s Summerlicious program continues to support Toronto’s hospitality industry while providing the enticing experiences and delectable food that restaurant-goers have come to love and expect from the popular program. Since 2003, participating restaurants have served more than eight million meals, generating more than $353 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry.

Summerlicious 2024 is sponsored by Hong Kong Tourism Board with support from media partners CP24, Newstalk 1010 and Toronto Star.

More information about Summerlicious including a list of participating restaurants and menus is available on the City’s Festivals & Events webpage.
