About Us



Welcome to the Underground...
Underground Flavour Group is about experimental dining, culinary collaborations and revolutionising the hospitality culture. Through our 3 organisations we offer luxurious, intimate, themed culinary services featuring a variety of cuisines, products & menus curated by some of the top emerging chefs in Ontario, Canada. We give our chefs a blank canvas to go above and beyond their culinary comfort zones to create unforgettable experiences that leave a lasting impression. Uniting our beautiful province's culinary communities is customary at UFG. We strive to keep building a stronger bond between you and the chefs through the beauty of food & community. At UFG, we believe that great creativity, synergy and success comes when chefs are given the opportunity to showcase their skills and be challenged in new ways. We're dedicated to continue pushing for more collaboration, entrepreneurship and team work within the hospitality community.
