Toronto Indie Resto Fest

If you’ve been following this blog for some time, you may recall that I have criticized the Winterlicious/Summerlicious initiatives put forth by the City of Toronto.

Imagine my surprise and delight when I heard about an alternative foodie festival called the Toronto Indie Resto Fest (TIRF.) Still in the early stages of development, TIRF promises to be everything that Winterlicious and Summerlicious are not. Restaurants will be treated equally and listed alphabetically to ensure fairness.
  • TIRF will run from February 15 - March 15, 2011
  • The pricing, not including tax and gratuities, is as follows:
    • A two course lunch menu will cost $17 (+ $3 for dessert)
    • A two course dinner menu will cost $23 (+ $5 for dessert)
    • House wine or cocktail $5
  • 10% of all proceeds will be donated to Second Harvest
  • To see the list of participating restaurants, visit


  1. Great idea!

    Your link seems to be broken - I found it at


  2. Thanks Janine. I updated the link so hopefully it works now. I hope TIRF really takes off!

  3. I would love to go to this but cannot find any info on facebook. Link just brings me to facebook home page.

  4. Thanks for your comment, Clover. It looks like they've taken the Facebook page down. If I hear any updates, I'll be sure to post about it again.
