Chef de Cuisine
Since his appointment as Luma’s Chef de Cuisine in 2012, Michael Wilson has distinguished himself by crafting globally inspired dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Drawing on the multicultural landscape of Toronto, Chef Michael brings forward his elevated, fresh take on world cuisine and passion for the city’s diverse cultures.
Chef Michael first got his start in Toronto’s food scene after graduating from Stratford Chefs School in 2002. He worked as Chef de Partie at Scaramouche Restaurant until 2004 and then as Saucier at Oliver & Bonacini’s Square Restaurant.
In 2005, he accepted his first Sous Chef position at Crush Wine Bar and was subsequently promoted to Executive Chef in 2007. In 2011, he joined Pizzeria Libretto as Chef de Cuisine.
Outside of Canada, Chef Michael has completed stagieres at Rhodes in the Square in London, working under Chef de Cuisine Michael James and at Crillon le Brave in Provence, where he worked under Executive Chef Philippe Monti.
Located at the corner of King and John Streets, the Bell Lightbox is home to the Toronto International Film Festival, and houses five theatres, three exhibition galleries and Malaparte, a dramatic sixth floor event space.
Paying homage to Toronto’s rich, cultural landscape, Luma’s menu showcases global and Canadian artisanal cuisine featuring the finest local and regional ingredients. Our menu is the perfect complement to the warm, inviting dining room, designed with rich woods, leather and stone and outstanding floor to ceiling views of King Street West.
