JK @ Gardiner

just back from lunch at JK at the gardiner ceramics museum. It is a very sexy room but felt a bit cold as it has huge high ceilings and windows but few people inside. It was only half full on a beautiful sunny Thursday at 12:30.

I started with a cocktail and ordered the fries (of course) and the hallibut hopper. The fries as always were overly salted. The fish was beautifully cooked and a nice portion but I found the fresh herbs overpowered the dish so much that I could not taste much else including the extra condiments that they provide to be added. Service was good but a bit cold, not many smiles from the staff but they were quick and efficient.

With one cocktail the bill came to $32 before tip which I thought was a bit high (fries should not be $7)..

I would go back for dinner where I think the room would have a better feel in the dark for a quiet romantic dinner..
