Jeff Claudio, the lionized master of the kitchen at Yours Truly on Ossington, is bidding the revamped restaurant strip adieu, as well as the city of Toronto. Supposedly embarking on an indefinite trip around the US, Claudio then hopes to settle down at a new spot of his own in London, England. Taking over at YT will be Lachlan Culjak – a graduate of some of Toronto’s best kitchens, including Splendido, Nota Bene and Scarpetta. Culjak also trained at the world renowned Noma in Denmark. Expect YT’s rhapsodized 20-course tasting menu to remain as inventive as ever with Culjak at the helm.
Jeff Claudio, thank you for your time and your tasty treats. With great faith in your successor, it’s still sad to see you go.
Best of luck.
