Since we missed out on Summerlicious this past spring and will likely have to do without Winterlicious next year, it’s super exciting to share that the Toronto tourist board has launched DineOutTO which in addition to supporting local restaurants, also gives diners a chance to score a deal on a great meal as well. The program is on now through October 30 and hundreds of Toronto restaurants that are located across the city are taking part.
Here’s 10 of our Favourite Hotspots to Take Advantage of Dine Out TO:
