If you've been spending a few too many wintry weekends on the couch finally watching "The Sopranos," Toronto restaurants are giving you an excuse to get out of the house. The annual Winterlicious festival, featuring prix fixe menus from $15 to $45 at eateries across the city, is in its 12th year, running from January 31 to February 13, 2014.
More than 200 restaurants are slotted to participate, included tough-to-reserve hot spots like Bent, Chiado, Momofuku Daisho and One, with reservations accepted as of January 16. The majority of restaurants are located downtown, but the offerings spread throughout the city, so those living north of the 401 and east of the DVP needn't be completely left out.
And a fair warning to the diners of Toronto — even if you don't want to partake in the Winterlicious prix fixe, going to any of the participating restaurants during those two weeks can mean you might have to. Call ahead to make sure, or try out some of our other favourite restaurants in Toronto.
You can check out the full list of participating restaurants (and their prices and menus) at the City of Toronto's Winterlicious site, but as you can see, it's a pretty overwhelming task. To help you out, the Toronto-based HuffPost Canada editors have selected their favourites based on a variety of criteria.
