Chef Julian Bentivegna’s intimate fine dining concept Ten, is now open at 1132 College Street. The restaurant is focused on a chef’s counter where Bentivegna serves a plant-based, multi-course tasting menu to just ten guests. The evolving menu is based on seasonality and availability. His goal is to “develop a small-scale, sustainable restaurant that will invoke creativity, knowledge and community through food.”
At just 24 years old, he’s spent a decade honing his craft, training and apprenticing in France before an invaluable stint at Chicago’s three Michelin-starred Grace. He worked in Toronto at Alo and Momofuku Daisho, hosting a sold-out series of pop-up dinners in preparation to open his own shop.
