Avlí ~ Our Story

Our Story

Restaurateur Edward Zaki and Chef Alexandre Gosselin met 16 years ago in Montreal, Canada.

Eddie and Alex are not only partners in this culinary venture, but they are also very good friends with one common goal in mind: developing modern culinary experiences through each restaurant they create. Avlí Mess Hall is intended to portray a contemporary flare through its modern culinary experience and vibrant bar.

Our passionate team offers modern Mediterranean cuisine that relies on fresh market produce. By creating intuitive and eclectic combinations, Chef Alexandre Gosselin respects and puts forward the integrity and flavors of the original ingredients. He shares with generosity his experience by offering combinations that are a little risky, a lot of fun and as fresh as it can be!

Avlí Mess Hall a space where people meet, socialize, laugh, drink, eat, live, love …come in and stay a while!
