Toronto's Best Kept Secret?


Had lunch yesterday at the Law Society of Upper Canada's restaurant at Osgoode Hall. What a pleasant surprise! The space was open concept done in dark woods, with stain glass windows and chandeliers. The tables, covered in white linens, were all set out, one next to the other. I felt as if I were lunching at Oxford or, well, Hart House, I guess...

Their chef, who trained in France, found a nice balance between traditional French fare and the lighter cuisine we are used to here (especially at lunch). I particularly enjoyed the Moroccan grilled chicken salad.

I was pleasantly surprised by the rosé that the cheerfully bombastic waiter suggested. It didn't taste like apple juice at all (!) and was a lovely compliment to the meal.

Don't be intimidated by those large cast iron gates that surround Osgoode Hall. The space is open to the public and the grounds are truly an oasis in the city. Do make a reservation first and also, be ready for the metal detector/frisking that accompanies your entry to the building.

This one goes down as the best meal I've ever been frisked prior to enjoying.
