Set on an unprepossessing stretch of Bloor—­discount furniture store across the street, gentlemen’s club a few doors down—Ortolan offers a snug room, soft lighting and unhurried service. Off the short chalkboard menu, crostini topped with a chilled slice of pickerel, olives and green onions is simultaneously bright and rich. A plate of buckwheat crêpes with sliced apples and a Brie de Meaux sauce balances sweetness and acidity, crunch and creaminess. Light gnocchi are a hair over-salted; a flatiron steak is beautifully seared but suffers from similarly heavy seasoning.
