Get to know me better

Creative and versatile chef creating unique cuisine

Originally from San Francisco, California, Chef Alvin Yu has spent a large portion of his life in the kitchen. Growing up in a large family, he was amazed at how his aunts and uncles could produce plentiful amounts of high-quality food for twenty to thirty people in a few hours. At an early age, he found himself assisting in the kitchens of his father’s Cantonese banquet-style restaurants.

These experiences inspired Chef Yu to pursue learning everything there was to know about the culinary arts. In college he continued to develop his cooking prowess and began to delight his friends with lavish affairs. In 2005, responding to the urging of well-fed friends and family members freshly aglow with their experience of his unifying cuisine, he started Fyusion Dining*. Chef Yu eventually developed a vision of dining that culminates in a feast for the senses - exquisite décor, expertly prepared cuisine, and a passion for encouraging patrons to explore the limitless diversity of the culinary world.

His passion, flair, and dexterity in the culinary arts invite diners throughout Chicago to slow down and enjoy each other’s company, thereby revisiting the dining experience. Chef Yu is a premier member of the United States Personal Chef Association.

I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Chef Al. The entire experience was out of this world!! Each dish was mouth watering, the presentation was beautiful, and Chef described each dish in detail. He was so attentive to our needs even before we had to ask. We are already planning our next dinner with Chef Al!
