Each of the Lunch Dates episodes is hosted by one of The Social who brings the other co-hosts to a Toronto restaurant of their choice.

From Lainey’s episode at R&D featuring Chinese/Canadian cuisine where they talk about Hollywood gossip to Cynthia’s relationship focused episode that takes place at a Burlesque dinner theatre, each host brings their various interests, backgrounds and experiences to offer five totally unique Lunch Date shows.
