DineTOgether program kicks off today in Toronto
TORONTO – The city says more than 270 restaurants in Toronto will participate in its DineTOgether initiative, which kicks off today.
The campaign aims to bring diners back to restaurants in Toronto after several months of closures linked to the pandemic.
The promotion, which is similar to Toronto’s Winterlicious and Summerlicious programs, lasts two weeks and offers customers one or more two-course lunch and / or dinner menus.
The price of the menus varies from $ 15 to $ 50.
âThe restaurants and cafes of Toronto are ready to welcome us again. It’s time to reconnect with family and friends over a great meal and experience the joy of dining out with ShowLoveTO’s CafÃ©TO and DineTOgether programs, âMayor John Tory said in a press release on Friday.
The city says more restaurants are participating in this program than any other city-run restaurant initiative.
âSurviving the COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge challenge for Toronto’s food and hospitality industry,â Coun said. Michael Thompson, Chairman of the Economic and Community Development Committee.
âThe city’s DineTOgether program is designed to help by encouraging residents to support their favorite restaurants by taking advantage of opportunities to dine indoors or on the patio, or by ordering take out or delivery meals.â
Restaurants in the city have been closed to in-person dining throughout the winter and spring as part of a lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Dining on the patio was re-authorized on June 11 and indoor dining resumed in Toronto on July 16.
