Oliver & Bonacini (of Canoe, Jump, and Auberge du Pommier, among others) will operate three distinct spaces within the film festival's new Lightbox building:
- O&B Canteen, café and ‘grab+go’ – now open to the public
- Luma, fine dining – set to open Sunday, September 12th
- Malaparte, 6th floor/rooftop event space – fall opening
At both O&B Canteen and Luma, the carefully selected ingredients, attention to presentation, and culinary expertise, make dining a pleasure. But where Canteen offers the remarkable feat of fine-food at take-away prices, Luma upstairs offers fine dining unrestrained by such limitations.
Familiar dishes are artfully presented, perfectly prepared, and certain to please – even common salads are elevated with creativity. Inventive menu items are both surprising and delightful (an ice-cream that tastes like popcorn!) The staff, approachable and accommodating, make the whole experience feel like dinner with friends.
Executive chef Jason Bangerter, and his staff at Luma, are sure to make Lightbox a destination for dining in Toronto — try to catch a movie while you're there, too... ;-)
Pick the best of the fest!
PS. thanks to Jason, Jane, Richard, Julie, Imogen, and Niamh, for making our first visit to Luma so enjoyable!
