Eastern European and Russian food is still relatively rare in Toronto, at least south of Steeles. Roman Kliotzkin is excited to return to the Depanneur with another contemporary and elegant Russian-inspired dinner. A lighter, early summer menu where fish, potatoes, and seasonal vegetables will be featured, along with modern versions of traditional Russian pastries. #pescatarian

Cherry and fresh cheese pelmeni dumplings, almond creme anglaise
Roman Kliotzkin dreams of doing something cool with food, one day. With pop-up dinners at the Belljar Cafe, Monarch Tavern and The Depanneur under his belt, he blends Eastern European cuisine with modern techniques and seasonal ingredients.
Every weekend The Depanneur invites an amateur or professional guest chef to host a fun, informal dinner party.
