Concierge.com's insider take:
Even if antique plates aren't your thing, there's a very good reason to pay a visit to the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art—namely, the restaurant. The open and airy all-glass box perched over University Avenue is helmed by local celeb Jamie Kennedy, who's nothing if not a fan of "local." Ingredients are sourced nearby, and an Ontario wine is matched with each dish. Expect hearty fare like a warm sheep's milk tartlet, or a braised duck sandwich. The fries are among the best in town, and the cheese plate is a survey of the region's best offerings. However, beware that the restaurant is open for dinner only on Friday nights.
Open Saturdays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, Fridays 11:30 am to 8:30 pm.
