A Modern Seafood Restaurant
Chef Matthew Kirkley’s cuisine at L2O (pronounced el-two-oh) reflects a repertoire of new and traditional cooking methods, exploring the intricacies of fish and shellfish in artful and modern compositions enhanced by the best ingredients available from land and sea. Set within the historic Belden-Stratford Hotel adjacent to Lincoln Park, L2O’s modern dining room, designed by Dirk Denison Architects, is divided into a number of distinct spaces, presenting a sense of intimacy accented by the natural beauty of light and dark woods, frosted glass, leather and soft-colored stones. With an innovative menu, warm hospitality and an engaging atmosphere, L2O offers a fresh perspective on fine dining.
