Meet our team!

We are so proud to be a neighbourhood restaurant.

Meet, George!
Hey Toronto! I'm George, your Executive Chef at Azarias Restaurant.  I've been a proud member serving the Kingsway area since early 2014.
 
After graduating Liason College, George Brown & Humber College; my hope's with the menu are to respect tradition, but have fun with the transition to global cuisines coming together. 
 
Working at hotels, bistros, bakeries, airline catering and Michelin restaurants has provided me the ability to serve you, our guest, an enjoyable dining experience over the years. 
 
I thank you for choosing to dine with us and hope you visit often.

Meet, Catherine!

Hi, I'm Catherine the new General Manager since early 2022! But to my Azarias family I'm known as Frenchie! I've been working here since the very beginning in May of 2013 and I absolutely love it! 

The food, the ambiance, but mainly the people I get to see every day mean that even if I'm having a bad day, getting to work puts me in a good mood. Not many people can say that and I know that makes me one of the lucky ones in this world.

I'm also an Actress, Director and Producer pursuing my dream of one day making it to the big screen. If you haven't had the chance to yet, check out: "Azarias The Musical" on Youtube! It was one of my little gifts to Mark one Christmas and remains one of my favorite music videos I've produced!

Next time you come in, make sure to say hello! You'll often find me singing and dancing throughout the restaurant.

Meet, sylvia!

Hey it’s Sylwia here, most of you know me since I’ve been a bartender at Azarias for 5 years now.

Azarias is a very special place to me and I am blessed to work here. As soon as you walk in you can feel the good vibes and the camaraderie of all the coworkers. We are all so unique yet come together and work as one to provide the best service and food to the people that walk through our doors.

During Covid, I put my entrepreneurial hat on and started growing my online medicinal mushroom business along with making healthy vegan meals for clients. 

Thank you to all the regulars that give us so much love, it would not be Azarias without you!

Meet, Caroline!

Hi! I’m Caroline and I’ve been working at Azarias since September 2018 (I am currently on a sabbatical for school but I will be back!). I’ve fallen in love with our staff, our regulars and most importantly, our food. Seared scallops anyone?

 

I’m entering my first year in my master’s in Genetic Counselling. Luckily Azarias has enough beer to get me through it. 

 

I’m so happy to be back and I can’t wait to see all of my favourite faces. Ive missed the laughs, the friendships and all of the shenanigans.

Meet, Nicole!

Hi I'm Nicole and I've been working at Azaria's since September 2018.  I am currently in my third year at University of Toronto for political science and environmental management. Working at Azaria's has provided me with a opportunity to work while still having the flexibility to be able to be in school. 

I feel so lucky that we have been able to re open, especially because that means that I get to order our amazing food again! As well as being able to see all our customers and of course my co workers again is just another perk of being part of the wonderful Azaria's community.
