Winterlicious/Summerlicious experiences?

stonedtoronto | Dec 1, 2008 10:32 PM

I tend to avoid whole Winterlicious/Summerlicious. I've heard so many negatives, I tend to only go to fine restaurant about once every two weeks, maybe three times a month if I am lucky. I've heard so many negatives from both foodies, and those in the kitchen of restaurants, that it's not worth it.

"You get what you pay for," said a friend who works at North. "How do you expect a $30 fixed menu to be as good as a $30 just isn't."

But there are so many restaurants that I want to try, and it seems unless I am willing to spend a few thousand, this is the only way. Is Winterlicious/Summerlicious worth it? Or is it like how my friend said? You won't get the whole experience, and you won't know how it is really like because you're paying for a sub-standard meal at these restaurants?

What's your opinions?
