Peak of the Week has now ended!

, , , , ,

This is our official wrap-up of the Peak of the Week lunch series! We are phasing out this program with the recent arrival of WaterPark Place’s new food vendors. For the last year, while the building was under renovation, The Rostie Group had started ‘Peak of the Week’ which is a meal delivery program for our clients. We picked a new restaurant every Wednesday (the peak of the week) and had lunch delivered for all of our clients from that restaurant.

We would like to thank our customers for their ongoing participation and support of Peak of the Week, which has made our program successful over the renovation period at WaterPark Place. Below are the most popular restaurants and dishes chosen by our customers. These are all local and Canadian favourites that we encourage you to try, especially if you’re interested in exploring more of Toronto’s food scene!
