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.

From start (selecting a chef) to to finish (going to bed with a clean kitchen) the experience was prefect. The meal was fantastic as was the service/presentation. It was a perfect night.

Chef Yu had the best menu options - it was hard to narrow it down! The food we chose could not have been better! Everyone in our group (20) loved each course and was begging for more to take home. Would hire him and his crew again in a heartbeat.
