There are now several more reasons to get excited about July’s Taste of Toronto, the first Canadian installment of the international Taste festival series. That’s because on Thursday, the festival—which counts Toronto Life among its media partners—announced its full restaurant lineup. The complete list reads a bit like a who’s-who of trendy Toronto dining. Here it goes (deep breath):

Splendido, Hudson Kitchen, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Valdez, Richmond Station, The Grove, Bosk, Los Colibris (and sister-taqueria El Caballito), The Harbord Room (and THR & Co.), Barque, Khao San Road, Yours Truly, Hopgood’s Foodliner, Anthony Rose’s north-of-Bloor trio (Rose and Sons, Big Crow and Fat Pasha), the entire Guu collective (Guu Izakaya, Kinton Ramen and Jabistro) and Mark McEwan’s McEwan Group.

Phewf. Momofuku will be a particularly active participant in the fest: David Chang is hosting a talk and book-signing on the opening day (July 24) and Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi will be on-site throughout the festival hawking Crack Pies and other assorted baked goods. The other participating restaurants will each be serving up three different tasting plates, allowing festival attendees to create custom mix-and-match meals from the city’s best restaurants—which is really pretty cool. Tickets and info can be found here.

July 24-27. $30 (incl. 6 Crowns). Fort York, 100 Garrison Rd., tasteoftoronto.com
