The ambiance at Gallery Grill is reason enough to go: colourful stained glass windows, soaring vaulted ceilings and a balcony that overlooks Hart House’s magisterial Great Hall. The elegant, airy room captures all the frenetic buzz of the classroom, full of professors and underfed students engaging in animated conversations about Aristotle and Aquinas between bites of super-fresh bistro food. A pleasant smokiness animates creamy, rich Arctic char rillettes. Duck breast arrives pink and juicy, topped with crunchy bits of candied garlic and chopped, scotch-soaked cherries. The pork croquette finds its match in the hot, honey-scented dijon mustard sauce; the crispy disc rests on an inventive salad of grilled grapes and mustardy arugula. The crème brûlée, made with syrup from the Hart House Farm in Caledon, is a must-try dessert. Closed July and August.
