THE RETURN OF SUMMERLICIOUS MEANS TORONTO DINERS CAN ONCE AGAIN SAVE ON SAMPLING THE MENUS AT TOP RESTAURANTS. BUT THE SEASONAL DINING DEAL ISN’T THE ONLY WAY TO GET CULINARY BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
DEALS FOR MEALS

From July 3 to 26, Summerlicious sees more than 200 restaurants offering prix-fixe lunch ($18 to $28) and dinner ($25 to $45) menus. Among the returning participants are Canoe, Momofuku Daisho and The Shore Club, while the likes of as Bestellen and District Oven are involved for the first time.
MORE SAVOURY SAVINGS
Year-round, select restaurants offer their own prix-fixe menus, too. Reservations for lunch ($55 to $69) and dinner ($65 to $79) at sky-high 360 The Restaurant at the CN Tower include access to the landmark’s look-out level and glass floor. For large groups, restaurants like Spanish-inspired Patria have set menus for brunch ($30 to $35) and dinner ($55 to $75), as does Italian resto-lounge Buonanotte, which serves family-style or individually plated meals ($45 to $90).
Let chefs at some of the city’s top kitchens guide your feast by indulging in their tasting menus. The toques’ discerning—and oft-changing—offerings showcase the freshest ingredients in unique preparations. Book a table at George to try executive chef Lorenzo Loseto’s signature three- or four-course lunch ($50 to $60) or five-, seven- or ten-course dinner ($110 to $150). Chef Michael Caballo at Edulis is similarly known for his mouth-watering menus ($65 or $90), which have included the likes of octopus with almond and chorizo puree, and quail and porcini terrine. —Linda Luong
