When was the last time that you walked into a coffee shop or restaurant and the manager greeted you by name having only met you once before? When was the last time that you ate delicious food and sipped a coffee, tea or alcoholic beverage in a place that offered you a variety of atmospheres that catered to every mood and moment: the calm and quiet of a library with overstuffed couches and comfy wing chairs with books to read or browse; a bright sunlit room with a view of a skating rink or playground and joyous laughter and conversation lightening the mood or an elegant dining room with tables suited for small, intimate gatherings or large, boisterous groups of family and friends celebrating a special occasion?
Located in the Thompson Hotel in trendy King West, Colette, the French-inspired jewel in the crown of the Chase Hospitality Group is all of this and so much more. With its savvy and sophisticated owner, Steve, taking the time to survey the minute details of the food, service and atmosphere of his restaurant through a guest’s eyes and Harry, his engaging and charming manager constantly on the move making sure each guest is being given first-class treatment, Colette is leading the pack in the increasingly crowded and competitive hospitality market in King West.
Colette is not the only restaurant in the Chase Hospitality Group that provides its guests with a positive and memorable experience. A globe-trotting colleague of mine who is not only highly regarded and well respected for her knowledge of and experience with markets and businesses in Canada, U.S., Europe and Asia but who is also seen as savvy, sophisticated and selective about where she dines with clients and friends has consistently raved about the food and atmosphere at the other Chase Hospitality Group restaurants in the heart of the financial district in downtown Toronto. It’s definitely worth the trip to King West to get a taste of French cuisine and hospitality at Colette. You are in for a treat!
