With rising temperatures and hem lines comes one of the most anticipated events of the summer in Toronto.
Summerlicious runs from July 6 – 22, 2012.
To celebrate the 10th year of the popular foodie event over 180 restaurants have created three-course prix fixe menus to taunt tastebuds.

My Summerlicious Shortlist
Auberge du Pommier – a French restaurant in North Toronto run by the esteemed Oliver & Bonacini chain with a lengthy wine list and gorgeous seasonal decor.
Boehmer – showing some love for my ‘hood and one of the many amazing restaurants that line Ossington between Queen and Dundas Streets, Boehmer emphasizes fresh and local ingredients.
c5 – with an address in the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal addition of the Royal Ontario Museum, c5 is known for the breath-taking view second only to the food and great service.
Canoe – another spot on my Shortlist goes to a restaurant in one of Toronto’s most recognizable landmark with mesmerizing views, the TD Tower in financial district. Canoe has been called one of Toronto’s best restaurants and after their recent million dollar renovation I’m excited to see the new digs.
L’unità – this Yorkville gem dishes up traditional Italian fare featuring handmade pasta and authentic thin crust pizza on it’s seasonal menus in an intimate environment.
La Société – another gorgeous Yorkville must-eat menu lives at La Société which boasts a fusion of Torontonian and Parisian-style sights and flavours. I have heard nothing but rave reviews for their brunch as well!
Ocho Hotel – an oft-overlooked addition to Spadina Avenue in the past year is the Ocho Hotel. Dishing up European fare in a historic building, the upscale atmosphere promises a complete lack of pretension; the freshest dish most Summerlicious restaurants can serve!
It was really difficult to make a “Shortlist” of restaurants because there are just way too many amazing menus.
