OpenTable Unveils Restaurant Guide for Top Summer Festivities in Canada

Calgary, Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver are all in the spotlight for their thriving culinary scenes and tourist attractions

TORONTO, July 28, 2016 /CNW/ -- In recognizing summer as Canada's unofficial "restaurant season," OpenTable, the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group (NASDAQ: PCLN), today unveiled a restaurant guide to this summer's hottest festivities. To help local and travelling diners find the perfect table, OpenTable Insiders have curated five lists for those attending popular events in Calgary, Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver.

Every summer, thousands of travellers from Canada and the U.S. gear up to attend music festivals, sporting events and celebrations of arts and culture across the country. For those making their way to the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival (Montréal), Calgary Pride, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), World Cup of Hockey 2016 (Toronto) or the Vancouver Fringe Festival, OpenTable has handpicked a selection of restaurants that highlight the thriving and diverse culinary landscape of each city. These lists make it easy for attendees to reserve tables at nearby restaurants, whether they want a quick bite to eat or are looking for a more relaxed dining experience.

"From well-known establishments to hidden neighbourhood gems, this guide showcases an array of cuisines and dining experiences each as unique as the community they're in," said Ziv Schierau, Head of National Accounts for OpenTable Canada. "Whether locals and travellers are looking to dine at upscale hot spots, casual eateries or if they seek a more family-friendly atmosphere, our selection has something for everyone."
