Gallery Grill at Hart House harthouse.utoronto.ca/culture/food#gallerygrill 416-978-2445 Monday-Friday & Sunday 1130am-130pm, Sept-June
One of the best brunch spots in the city. Contemporary modern food, “comforting yet cosmopolitan”. The beauty of the vaulted high ceilings, the warmness of the bittersweet chocolate cake with chestnut truffle and salted-caramel semi freddo, the hand painted stained glass windows which filter the natural light and dance around you, makes Gallery Grill absolutely heavenly. Warm smoked trout salad with roasted ricotta, fennel & artichoke and a blood orange vinaigrette is sublime. Birds-eye views into both Hart Houses oak panelled Great Hall and its sculpture studded quadrangle. House made sorbets and ice creams refresh the palette or can complete this lovely meal.
Assortment of Teas, Coffee and juices. Full bar complete with a knowledgeable bartender.
