Happy New Year to all of you!!!

 

 Who is interested in dining for Winterlicious?

"Winterlicious is an annual event offering prix fixe menus at a number of Toronto's fine dining restaurants"

It runs from January 27th to February 9th, but restaurants will begin accepting reservations on Jan 12th.

I am planning this event for February 4th, but I want to know how many people are interested and which restaurants you prefer from the list below (I have also added the menu info). Please let me know no later than Wednesday, so I can organize this event and make reservations.

 

Thank you,

Soraya
