The Yaletown Business Improvement Association today announced that the 9th Annual Taste of Yaletown (TOY) will run from October 16 to 27, 2013, with a record number of 30 participating restaurants.

This year, the popular dining event will move away from limited 3-course menus to offer creativity and flexibility to chefs who can now offer any menu combination at set prices of $25, $35 and $45. Organizers expect to see a diverse and exciting offering, with specific emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients as a result of this change. Additionally, TOY will also include lunchtime menu offerings alongside the traditional dinner. The addition of lunch will be supported and promoted through a unique, free trolley service to Yaletown for the public.

“Taste of Yaletown has remained one of the most popular dining events in the city for the past nine years, and we are dedicated to continuing to push the envelope on delivering a unique experience for diners,” said Annette O’Shea, Executive Director of the Yaletown BIA. “The fact that we have a record 30 restaurants on board this year is a testament to TOY’s continual growth and strength.”

This year, chefs and restauranteurs will have the freedom to serve up any combination of items or courses under the same price points, meaning that the public will receive something truly unique and carefully selected at each restaurant. Menus will not be limited by number of courses and can include beverage pairings inside of the set prices as well.

“Removing the limitations of number of courses has opened things up further so that [chefs] are free to decide how best to deliver their very best to customers,” said O’Shea. “I suspect we will see a huge range in exciting menus this year – everything from a seven-course tasting to a menu that includes drinks as well as food.”
