Concierge.com's insider take:
Daniel Libeskind's angular glass-and-metal addition to the Royal Ontario Museum may be filled with dinosaur skeletons and stuffed birds, but the fifth floor is reserved for the pursuit of fine culinary enjoyment. The space looks something like a postmodern attic—vaulted ceiling, angular walls, open kitchen, slashes of window veering in odd directions—and the crowd is just what you'd expect: well dressed and well heeled, though certainly not stuffy. Diners are encouraged to order a six-course menu; not-to-be-missed starters are the raw platter and the grilled octopus. Mains such as rack of lamb or roasted squab with seared foie gras aren't big, but the execution is faultless. Servers are attentive and friendly, and quite capable of suggesting appropriate wine pairings.
Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, Thursdays through Saturdays, 5 to 10 pm.
