Meet the owner

Paul Marshall loves food. Not just preparing and eating it, but everything that good food and drink represents: warmth, comfort and the coming together of friends, family and even strangers around a table to share stories.

That’s what Love Chix is all about. Paul opened his funky resto/bar on Dupont Street in the Junction on July 1, 2016. He’s there every day from morning to night, larger than life– at over six feet tall, he is a presence – ready to personally greet his customers, get to know them, share his stories and listen to theirs.

Paul discovered the magic of food while working in the kitchens at Queen's Landing Inn at Niagara on the Lake. After three weeks as a dishwasher, he moved up to garde manger, happily preparing and plating salads and appetizers. The energy in the kitchen as the team worked to produce good food hooked him in. “That was the start of the connection of what food actually is,” says Paul. “Food is probably, globally, something everyone can agree on– sitting around a table with family and friends enjoying good food; that is an awesome time.”

This was our first time at Love Chix. We shared a whole chicken was just delicious. As a side we had the Brussels sprouts and they were to die for. The staff were just lovely and the atmosphere is super comfortable. It’s sore of shappy chic. We will definitely be going back!

Very good sides (brussel sprouts and coleslaw) but fried chicken was way too spicy and not enough meat to batter ratio.

Another fabulous meal at Love Chix. It was a perfect night for the patio. Started with the mussels and burrato then moved onto beet salad and roasted brussel sprouts. Our mains were fried chicken and butter chicken. Have enough butter chicken for at least one more meal. Didn't take any of the fried chicken home. Finger licking good. Try it for yourself you will not be disappointed.

We ate there on a Thursday evening, with 2 kids in tow. The staff were great with accommodating the kids, and the food was delicious. Had the fried chicken that has the 3 'S', sticky, sweet and spicy. I'm inspired by crispy fried brussel sprouts with lemon and parmesan and will try this at home, and you can't have fry chicken without fries. It is accompanied by spicy house ketchup. Admittedly, my kids weren't use to the chewiness of the kale in the Caesar salad compared to the crunch of romaine. That just left more for mom! We were pretty satiated and took home the remaining food.

Great patio and delicious food. The best corn I've ever had. Our server was very attentive, accommodating, and friendly. She even brought out a container filled with water (and ice) for the pooch next to us. Service was way above average. Will definitely return very soon.

This was an early Christmas for 3 life long friends! We all had excellent mains and shared 3 sides. Each of these were unique in flavour combinations, well prepared and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is upbeat yet very local and down to earth I have been raving about Love Chix all day! It sounds wild but just go for the Brussels sprouts - a miracle of taste sensations!

Best Restaurants for Burgers in Toronto

Here, the burger is pretty ingenious, as what shouldn’t work, does: A beef patty gets topped with Old Bay tartar sauce, red cabbage slaw, delicate house pickles and get ready for it - beer battered fried haddock! And as if that weren't enough, here comes the kicker – it’s all housed on a flawless homemade pretzel. It’s juicy and meaty and chewy and crunchy and scrumptious. And completely brilliant.
