Jeff Claudio is leaving Yours Truly at the end of March
Yours Truly’s 29-year-old head chef, who came to Toronto by way of some of the world’s most celebrated kitchens, is exiting the Ossington strip restaurant and the city. Replacing Claudio is Lachlan Culjak, who has worked in the kitchens of Toronto institutions Splendido, Nota Bene and Scarpetta and trained at Noma, a world-renowned Danish restaurant that receives close to 100,000 reservation requests a month. The new chef says he’ll continue Claudio’s lauded 20-course tasting menus, which propelled Yours Truly to the top of our list of the city’s best new restaurants last year. Claudio plans to travel around the United States indefinitely before moving to London, England, where he hopes to start his own restaurant.

Yours Truly can only get better with a new chef…I was not impressed with the Carte Blanche tasting menu I had there a few months ago. There were a solid 5-6 *bad* dishes and only 5-6 great ones. While I can’t fault Jeff Claudio’s creativity, very little came together tastewise. I feel like the only people who genuinely think Yours Truly is a top Toronto restaurants are people who have been in Toronto for too long.
