Whether for a date, business meeting or event the Milano style experience that includes amazing service, refreshing and elegant decor, C House’s own signature cocktails, modern menu and quality coffee beans and best equipment in the world this is a great venue experience.
C House began as a brilliant idea of the enterprising Cristiano Iezzi (Milan), creativity of leading restaurant designer Andrea Langhi (Milan) and support of Torrefazione Poli, a major Italian coffee business. The concept combines the best of quality culinary, design and service experience, which has made it one of the most elegant lounges in the world. This elegance has proven to impress people regardless in every one of the 40 locations in XX countries in which C House now has a location.
It only made sense for C House to locate in Yorkville, as the neighbourhood’s culturally rich history, diversity, international flair and top quality reflects the C House experience. The Yorkville community attracts both the sophisticated international customer as well as local individuals that appreciate the atmosphere, food and service they enjoy at C House. People come to C House for the gusto, quality, atmosphere and service found in the Mediterranean culture.
With locations in Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, Romania, United Emirates, Cyprus and Canada C House is attracting a culturally diverse clientele which enjoy the most refined things in life, one
of them being the C House service and experience. C House has been able to rise to the challenge of bringing the Milanese lifestyle to new locations in different countries in a way that is consistent, understood, and appreciated,and so far, we have succeeded brilliantly.
C House’s customers are different in every country. In Romania the crowd is young and wealthy. In fact recently the most famous TV presenter turned up at the restaurant with her entourage. Half an hour later her boyfriend, a famous footballer showed up and then they asked for all lights to be turned off and replaced with candlelight, and ordered champagne. That is when he popped “The Question” and asked her to marry him. In the UAE they are local businessmen and sheiks, in Morocco they are a growing middle-class crowd and in Cyprus and Agai we are considered young and trendy. While in Canada we are attracting financiers, international business people, celebrities, media players, wealthy Yorkville residents and jet-set crowd. And in Italy we are considered everyone’s favourite cafe!
This Milanese experience shows through in both formats of C House; the lounge and express. Express is adapt for fast moving areas, such as in commercial centres and financial districts, while the Lounge format is more adapt for high class hotels, malls and neighbourhoods.
In Canada Mauro Cirelli drives the operations and training for both formats and he is part of the vision is to spread the concept to ideal locations across Canada. Mauro himself has quite a business pedigree having worked with one of the Europe’s largest restaurant chains based out of London, England. Now he is using his combination of British style methods with Italian style gusto and service to produce a contemporary experience to indulge the discerning soul. It is no wonder that the company’s goal is to open 60 locations in Canada alone within the next 5 years. C House is also looking at opening locations in Qatar, Santo Domingo and Russia and is open to looking at any location with a demand for the experience it provides.
C House is quickly developing a reputation for being a must try experience on Yorkville. Impressive with amazing service, refreshing and plush decor, portfolio of over 43 cocktails, great modern menu, the best coffee equipment in the world and a crisp atmosphere its Salotto Milanese experience is an attraction in itself. Many of the jet-set crowd drop in during the day to try the signature open sandwich dishes. Then there are customers that look forward to trying C House’s next signature cocktail creations. These creations include the world class Montecristo and the Chilli Mai Tai, which are attracting individuals from across the Toronto area. It is for this reason that the head chef, Yuri has been invited to participate in a cocktail competition.
