Named after Executive Chef Curtis “Lips” Demyon, Lips Resto takes classic cuisines and adds their own modern bistro touch. Newly opened, Lips celebrated their grand opening with a bang- a red carpet, free drinks, a DJ and lots of food! I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening on May 31st, 2015 and had a great time with some of my fellow foodie friends.
The management at Lips was also kind enough to invite myself and a guest for a private dining experience, on the house. They were very accommodating even when I had to short-notice cancel my first reservation.
When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the Maitre D’ and were seated right away. The manager and head chef personally greeted us. They asked if I would like to order dishes off the menu or if I wanted to let the chef send out what he wanted us to try. I chose to let the chef send out his dishes of choice, because I thought it would make it a more interesting dinner. I’m glad I did, because my favourite dish turned out to be the Salmon (which is something I don’t usually order at restaurants).
Overall I had an amazing dining experience. The service was excellent and I appreciated innovation of each dish.
