Set menus to enjoy all season long
Now that Winterlicious has ended, are you missing prix fixe menus?
Don’t fret, the city is full of options. And they're not limited to weekends, dinner or special occasions either.
Because you’ve got enough decisions to make without having to pour through pages of menu options, here's a round up of restaurants with set menus to enjoy all winter.
(Please note menu items, ingredients and prices subject to change.)
