Winterlicious 2018 in Toronto Dates

For a second year, Aeroplan is the Official Premier Sponsor of Toronto’s Winterlicious. This year it is  taking place between January 26 – February. 8, 2018. During this culinary event, food fans can experience Toronto’s diverse cuisine through delicious three-course prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at more than 200 top restaurants.

If you’re not familiar with this popular food fest, it’s a two-week event promoted by the City of Toronto featuring more than 200 of Toronto’s top restaurants offering three-course prix fixe menus in one of three price categories:

Lunch:  $23  |  $28  |  $33        Dinner:  $33  |  $43  |  $53

Aeroplan Members Can Make Winterlicious Reservations Before General Public

Since the launch of the Licious events ( there’s Summerlicious too!) in 2003, participating restaurants have served 6.8 million meals. This means there’s a lot of competition for reservations at the top restaurants.

But if you’re an Aeroplan member, you get a head start on booking a table at your favourite restaurant. You’re actually allowed to make reservations at Winterlicious participating restaurants a full day before everyone else.

For Winterlicious 2018, this means Aeroplan members can make advance reservations at participating restaurants on January 10th. Reservations for the general public begin on January 11, 2018.

On January 10, 2018 only, Aeroplan members can make advance reservations by calling any of the participating Winterlicious restaurants and providing the first three digits of their Aeroplan number, along with access code “MOMENTS18.”

Get more information as well as a complete list of the 200+ Winterlicious 2018 participating restaurants at  Aeroplan Moments to Savour.
