Celebrate, Explore and Savour Toronto’s culinary industry with Winterlicious
  
The phenomenally successful restaurant promotion Winterlicious, presented by American Express, returns to Toronto January 27 – February 9, 2006. The third annual Winterlicious is part of the WinterCity Festival, an award-winning 14 day city-wide celebration of Toronto’s culture, creativity and cuisine.

More than 120 participating restaurants will offer a special three-course prix fixe menu where patrons can sample the establishment’s tasty fare at fantastic price points. Prix fixe menu price categories are $15 or $20 for Lunch and $25 or $35 for Dinner. Prices are per person, plus taxes and gratuity. Beverages are additional.

American Express Cardmembers can go to the Front Of The Line® to book early Winterlicious reservations by contacting participating restaurants directly on January 10 and 11, 2006. All other reservations will be accepted from January 12, 2006. Visit http://www.toronto.ca for a full list of restaurants and their menus.

Designed to ignite the imaginations and appetites of local and visiting foodies, the program includes the participation of 126 of Toronto’s finest restaurants — the most ever. Diners can also enjoy a glass of wine from Jackson-Triggs Estate Wines or R.H. Phillips with their Winterlicious meals. Ask for these specially selected wines at participating restaurants.

In addition to the hugely popular prix fixe menus, 10 establishments will be offering unusual food-related events. These culinary experiences allow guests to savour delectable meals followed by dancing, unique tours and other rare experiences.

In past years Torontonians and tourists alike have enthusiastically celebrated Toronto’s diverse and innovative cuisine with delicious menus available at restaurants city-wide. Winterlicious 2005 sold more that 183,000 meals over the 14 days – an increase of 67% from the previous year and resulting in an estimated $6.4 million in economic activity.
