The City of Toronto and partners are proud to bring back Summerlicious, Toronto’s annual opportunity to explore the city’s exceptional culinary landscape. Postponed throughout 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the return of Summerlicious is good news for restaurants, residents and visitors to Toronto.

Summerlicious 2022 will run from Friday, August 12 to Sunday, August 28 with delicious prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at more than 200 local restaurants. Three-course prix fixe lunch menus are priced at $20, $27, $34, $41, $48 and $55, and dinners are priced at $25, $35, $45, $55, $65 and $75. Restaurants will start accepting reservations for the Prix Fixe Promotion on Thursday, July 28.

Reservations are strongly recommended and should be made directly with the participating dining establishments. Some participating restaurants do not offer a lunch prix fixe menu on Saturday or Sunday. A complete list of participating restaurants is available on the Summerlicious webpage.

The City is grateful for the support of media partners CityTV, NEWSTALK 1010, OMNI Television and Toronto Star.

This year’s Summerlicious program aims to support the recovery and revival of Toronto’s restaurants while providing the enticing experiences and delectable food that restaurant-goers have come to expect from the popular Summerlicious program. The program has been renewed to help the local industry generate much-needed revenue while encouraging people to travel the world with Summerlicious.
