Since launching last summer, Lavelle has become known as one of Toronto’s exclusive King West luxury lounge and outdoor cabana bars. What you may not know is that the restaurant at Lavelle is even more spectacular than the views! Executive Chef Romain Avril is a master at creating contemporary French dishes with ingredients of only the highest quality. Having worked in Michelin star restaurants in his native France, Chef Avril shows off his passion and expertise with each dish. With a background and extensive training in both fusion and molecular gastronomy he plates each dish with the intention to send your eyes dancing across the dish and capture your attention. His plating is so spectacular you’ll have to take a photo of it like you would a piece of art before you can even think of diving in.
Even his seemingly simple dishes are so complex that with each mouthful you will find yourself peeling back a new layer of flavors.
If you are looking for a new place to impress a date or schmooze a client Lavelle is your spot! The inviting contemporary lavish atmosphere is sure to amaze any dinner guest and you will no doubt impress with this choice. Lavelle is now open for brunch as well and according to Chef Romain Avril has many new exciting things coming down the pipeline that has me enthusiastically staying tuned in for!

Above are some of the dishes that I got to experience last week when I went for dinner with a girlfriend at the restaurant. I was very pleased to meet Chef Romain Avril who is happy to meet and talk about the food with any of his customers. He is definitely a chef that cares not only about his food but also about your overall experience. If you have any questions or just want to shake his hand he is always willing to make time for his guest.
