This French-Cantonese restaurant, a fun surprise for Little Italy, is a bona fide hit with chic young Torontonians.

At DaiLo, we believe eating well is a fundamental part of living well, and how we cook, reflects how we live. Thoughtful and high quality ingredients lead to better lives and more delicious meals. Our New Asian Cuisine is predominantly Chinese fare but it follows the French tradition. At the heart of the menu is a love and respect for the dishes Chef Nick Liu ate growing up as the son of Hakka parents in Canada, but importantly, they are the dishes his ancestors have been eating for hundreds of years. Ancient favourites are augmented by Liu’s signature flair and updated to suit the western palate and the modern demand for local and sustainable ingredients.

Q What's the overview with this place?

With gorgeous, deep-cerulean hues, DaiLo feels like the set of "In the Mood For Love" or some other iconic Hong Kong drama. Throw in some flattering muted lights, and you have one of the sexiest spaces in the city. The owners also operate Lopan, the bar upstairs, where the vibe is especially buzzy on late nights and weekends.

Q What was the crowd like?

Young Torontonian foodies eager to try French-Cantonese cuisine, from the lamb's neck to the confit peppered pork cheeks.
