Meet the Chef

Is there a restaurant in Toronto where the chef will come out and greet some of the customers? I think you can tell a lot about a restaurant and their food from the chef's appearance and attitude.

  1. Any time I have gone to Splendido, chef David Lee would visit our table and others in the dining room.

      Yes. And he's a very pleasant guy. :-)

    2. Rod Bowers at The Rosebud (669 Queen Street West)

        Yes, Rod is great, always time to chat and always enquires how you liked the food and specifically what you thought of different items.

      2. Susur has come around a number of times when I've been there.

          I have seen Susur at Lee as well.

        2. "Pomegranate" in the Beaches....Queen St.E near Lee Ave. The chef is the owner, and you can watch him cook your food. We've been there several times, and he has come out from behind his cooking counter everytime to talk to us. And the food is amazing as well!

          1. the last time i was at Mistura, the chef came out and spoke to each table.
