An evening at LVB is not unlike an evening at the theater, where Chef Ryan Gialanze acts as artistic director of a talented and colourful troupe that will tease and entertain all of your senses. There are three set menus to choose from, and they change on a weekly basis. The cuisine presents elements of novelty while still maintaining a familiar Mediterranean feel. There’s the “Chef’s recommended 7-course menu”, the “5-course menu”, and the “Vegetarian menu”. Each item on the menu is described briefly, but you’ll need to wait for the dishes themselves to uncover each of their nuances. It’s like knowing the general plot points of an operetta, but being surprised by the unique characteristics of each cast member’s performance.
