Hot Dining: Luma Lights Up

This past September, film lovers gained a new home in the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and its second-
floor restaurant, Luma, has quickly become a hot spot for movie-mogul meetings and post-show powwows alike. Executive chef Jason Bangerter directs the kitchen at this upscale, Oliver and Bonacini-operated culinary theatre overlooking King and John streets, where dishes such as roasted cod with northern woods mushrooms and sweetbreads ($29) and lamb sirloin with black currant jam ($36) star on a menu spotlighting global fare and local ingredients. Cocktails get the red-carpet treatment, too—try Fellini’s Bellini ($12) or A Sidecar Named Desire ($11).
