Summerlicious runs from July 7 to 23 at more than 200 Toronto restaurants
  
Summerlicious, presented by YP Dine and produced by the City of Toronto, returns July 7 to 23 with mouth-watering meals served at more than 200 of Toronto's favourite restaurants. Three-course prix fixe lunch menus are priced at $18, $23 and $28 and dinner menus are priced at $28, $38 and $48. Reservations begin on June 22.

The 15th annual city-wide culinary event welcomes 22 new restaurants this year, including Cactus Club Cafe, Maple Leaf Tavern, Jamie's Italian (Yorkdale), Mochica, Ricarda's and TOCA (The Ritz-Carlton).

"Now in its 15th year, Summerlicious continues to offer incredible dining opportunities at some of Toronto's best restaurants for exceptional value," said Mayor John Tory. "I encourage Torontonians to get out and explore the diverse cuisine this city offers."

"Summerlicious is great value for diners and a significant economic boost to the city," said Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Economic Development Committee. "Since its inception in 2003, participating restaurants have served 6.5 million meals, generating nearly $290 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry."

“We're pleased to be the presenting sponsor and exclusive reservation partner for Summerlicious, an integral part of Toronto’s culinary dining scene,” said Jeff Novak, Brand Director at YP Dine, an award-winning restaurant and dining app. “YP Dine allows users to reserve a table and discover great food during Summerlicious and all year round. With its geo-localized features like the option to order in, make reservations, and access curated lists and reviews, YP Dine meets the needs of foodies and restaurateurs across Canada.”

Other returning sponsors are Aeroplan as the official premier sponsor and ESKA Natural Spring Water as the official water sponsor. Joining them in support of Summerlicious is Samuel Adams as the official beer sponsor.

About Summerlicious and Winterlicious
The Summerlicious and Winterlicious programs are produced by the City of Toronto. The Licious programs began in 2003 as a way to boost Toronto's restaurant industry during typically slow periods of business. In the years since the programs' inception, participating restaurants have served 6.5 million meals during the promotion which have generated nearly $290 million in economic activity for the local restaurant industry. The Licious programs were ranked in the top three all-time favourite festivals, fairs and events in Field Day's fourth annual Toronto entertainment survey.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
