Summerlicious Toronto’s Favourite Summer Food Event

 Mayor John Tory announced the City of Toronto’s popular Summerlicious program is returning this summer from August 12 to 28. Summerlicious was cancelled in 2020 and 2021.

Summerlicious 2022 has been designed to make it easier for restaurants to participate and to encourage more Toronto residents to dine-in and celebrate the city’s diverse culinary scene.

The program has been renewed to help the local industry generate much-needed revenue while also encouraging and building confidence in people so that they choose to safely enjoy indoor and patio dining again. 

The Winterlicious and Summerlicious programs began in 2003 as a way to boost Toronto’s restaurant industry during historically slow periods of business. 

The Winterlicious and Summerlicious restaurants have served more than 7.9 million meals, generating more than $353 million for the local restaurant industry.

Summerlicious 2022 Program Details

  • Participating restaurants must offer a 3-course prix fixe menu for lunch and/or dinner, according to their regular business hours, and for on-premises dining (indoor and patio, if available).
  • Prix fixe menu(s) must consist of an appetizer/starter, main, and dessert, and offer a minimum of three options per course.
  • Prix fixe menu(s) must be priced at one of the program’s expanded range of price point categories.

New changes for Summerlicious 2022

  • Free restaurant participation (no fee)
  • Expanded range of price point categories for 3-course prix fixe Summerlicious menus, both lower and higher than the traditional three price point categories (beverages, tax and gratuity not included):
    • $20 Lunch / $25 Dinner (new price point category)
    • $27 Lunch / $35 Dinner
    • $34 Lunch / $45 Dinner
    • $41 Lunch / $55 Dinner
    • $48 Lunch / $65 Dinner (new price point category)
    • $55 Lunch / $75 Dinner (new price point category)
  • Simplified, online application process.
