Pa­trick Kriss

Chef and Co-owner, alo

Toronto Life - - The Fifty Most Influential 2018 -

some of our most fa­mous chefs seem to spend more time sweat­ing on Iron Chef, post­ing In­sta­gram selfies and host­ing Euro­pean food tours than they do in their own restau­rants. Kriss isn’t like that. He’s al­ways in the kitchen at Alo, ob­sess­ing over his ex­quis­ite, sea­sonal set menus and the chore­og­ra­phy of his kitchen team. He’s revered by chefs as much for the bril­liance of his plates as for his abil­ity to keep such lofty stan­dards, three years run­ning. His two new, more re­laxed spin-offs, Aloette and Alo­bar, rank among our best restau­rants. friends in high places: Daniel Boulud, his men­tor and for­mer boss, of­ten vis­its Kriss when he’s in town, some­times co­host­ing spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tive lunches.
