There's richness in tradition, and mastery in interpretation. Susur Lee invites you to Chinese food the way it was meant to be: so tasty you'll want to share. Luckee's Nouvelle Chinoise cuisine features classic dishes and dim sum from the culinary traditions of Guangzhou, Hunan, Shanghai and Szechuan regions, updated and enhanced by Chef Lee's delectable signature. Luckee for all of us.
From inauspicious beginnings as a 16-year-old apprentice at Hong Kong's elegant Peninsula Hotel, to his Atlas stride atop the fickle universe of celebrity chefdom, Susur Lee has never deviated from a consuming passion: to create tantalizing dishes that blend textures and flavors in glorious harmony. Balancing the epicurean traditions of China with the classical techniques of French cuisine, Chef Lee improvises a daring and original culinary aesthetic.
Praised as one of the “Ten Chefs of the Millennium” in 2000
by Food & Wine magazine, Susur Lee is still at the top of
his game. In addition to overseeing four restaurants in
Toronto and his prestigious Club Chinois in Singapore, Chef
Lee makes numerous television appearances and travels the
globe as guest chef and consultant. He was a media
sensation on the Food Network's Top Chef Master, where he
vanquished 20 competing chefs and crossed filleting knives
with Marcus Samuelsson in a kitchen showdown. In 2015 he
appeared as a judge on the Food Network's hit show,
Chopped Canada, and more recently was named a judge on Master Chef Asia.
Luckee Restaurant and Bar, located in Toronto’s Soho
Metropolitan Hotel, was inspired by Susur Lee’s travels
throughout Asia, notably Guangdong,
Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore. Traditional dim sum has never tasted so deliciously modern.
