About Taste of Burlington
In March of 2008, Tourism Burlington invited local restaurants to meet with representatives from Tourism, Burlington Downtown and Aldershot Business Community to discuss how to increase awareness of Burlington as a dining and culinary destination.
From that initial meeting it was suggested that a committee be struck to look into the feasibility of offering a Prix Fixe Dining Program. This type of program has successfully been offered by a number of cities including Toronto (Winterlicious & Summerlicious), Oakville (part of Fabulous February – Taste of Downtown Oakville), and Bronte (Brontelicious).
Committee members came together from Tourism Burlington, Aldershot BIA, Burlington Downtown and local restaurants to develop and design the program. A Taste of Burlington encourages residents and visitors to dine in one or more of our many dining establishments and enjoy new culinary experiences. The program began in July/August, 2008 with 12 restaurants participating. It has grown with each successive program and in 2014 A Taste of Burlington was offered in the winter and summer with great success.
The program is administrated by Tourism Burlington and continues to have a volunteer committee oversee it. We have been able to offer diners a wider variety of culinary experiences and cuisines by continually reaching out to new restaurants to participate. We also encourage restaurants to offer local Ontario sourced ingredients on their menus to support our farmers and economy. In an effort to accommodate diners, we have noted on our website restaurants that offer vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and children’s menus. These options may not be available through the prix fixe dining menus but will allow diners to order from the regular menu and enjoy all our restaurants have to offer.
