I'm always in Toronto in June and seem to just miss out on summerlicious, but not this year. In my current hometown of Miami the comparable event ("Miami Spice") is the entire month of July and August, but down here that is "slow season" so there is generally some really good deals. In contrast, Summerlicious is in the busier season in Toronto, so things may be different. So who is great and who is grudging?
My only experience was with Canoe, which was fantastic but has become impossible to book. I see lots of interesting alternatives: Splendido, Cafe Boulud, Daisho, Scarpetta (which has an almost identical menu to the one in Miami, which is amazing and great value).
Anyway, love it or hate it, summerlicious always deserves a thread for raves or rants, so let the games begin.
