Osgoode Hall Restaurant – Lunch with lawyers

For a unique lunch experience in one of Toronto’s most beautiful heritage buildings, a glimpse of the City’s history and the opportunity to hobnob with lawyers, judges and other jurists (a crucial component of any memorable meal), a visit to Osgoode Hall is in order.

Centrally located at Queen and University, right next to City Hall, Osgoode Hall is currently home to the Court of Appeal for Ontario, the Superior Court Of Justice and the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC), the regulatory body governing the legal profession in Ontario. It’s not to be confused with Osgoode Hall Law School (my alma mater!), which was moved up to York University in the late-1960s after it outgrew the space.

To get to the restaurant, make your way along Osgoode Lane to the LSUC entrance on the east side of the building, and ask the front desk or security guard for further directions. I highly recommend springing for the Chef’s Menu, a prix-fixe menu that changes regularly and is made with local and seasonal ingredients. Have a glass of wine while you’re at it, and as you sip, take in the chandeliers, stained glass and leather-bound tomes. After lunch, walk through the ornate Great Library and the rest of Osgoode Hall.

Be sure to make a reservation in advance through Open Table! It often fills up. Note that the restaurant is open from September to June.
