Introducing Avelo at Home

We know there has been a lot of change lately, but one thing has remained the same – our commitment to providing an extraordinary dining experience for our guests through an exploration of plant-based cuisine. That’s why we’re embracing the change and introducing Avelo at Home, our take-out and delivery concept launching Thursday, October 15, 2020.

Our 4-course tasting menu is available for 2 people, for families or a la carte! The menu will change regularly, so check back often. This week, we are serving:

– the long-time favourite porcini mushroom soup
– plant-based cheese board with house-made ciabatta bread
– maitake mushrooms with bordelaise sauce, potato and cauliflower gratin
– Honeycrisp apple tatin with vanilla bean coconut ice cream.

Add a bottle of wine to complete your experience! Bottles are discounted from our regular menu prices.

We ask that guests order ahead at least one day ahead. Limited pick-up and delivery times are available from 5:00 – 8:30pm, Thursday – Saturday through localEats.TO.

Our deepest desire is to welcome you back to our dining room and we’ll be sure to let you know when our doors are open again. In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to serving you (even if it is from a distance, for now!).

With much gratitude,

The Avelo Team

Looking for a more casual dining experience? Our sibling restaurant, Pizzeria Du, is serving up gourmet plant-based pizzas for delivery or pickup through our local delivery co-op initiative, localEats.TO.

We can accommodate a wide range of other dietary restrictions, and always have gluten-free options. We do require 48 hours advance notice, and there may be an additional surcharge for more complicated requests. We are unfortunately not able to accommodate allium (onion and garlic plants) allergies as they are part of most of our courses.

Our building and name

Our restaurant is located in a Victorian heritage building on St Nicholas Street, a quaint street in the heart of downtown near Yonge and Bloor. The house was originally built in the 1880’s in a row of worker’s townhomes. Each house has a name engraved on a stone block – ours is “Hazel Cottage.” “Avelo” means “hazelnut” in Esperanto.

A plant-based collective

We are a group of dedicated individuals, working together to provide our guests with an exceptional experience in plant-based dining.

Our team members have worked in a wide range of restaurants the world over. We work collaboratively, drawing on this broad knowledge and experience to create our eclectic style of service. Our dishes reflect the heritage and culture of our team members, applied through seasonal Canadian produce. We believe that the combined talents of a skilled group can produce far more creativity than any individual could.
