Food Studio: Not Just Crystal, the ROM Has New Food Too
Druxy's at the ROM is no more. The day after the tired deli's lease expired, the ROM unveiled the Food Studio, a spacious and modern self-serve restaurant sporting an eclectic menu and commitment to sourcing local and organic ingredients.
On my visit earlier this week, there were already a number of diners helping themselves to a suprisingly vast selection which includes freshly made mini pizzas ($6.00), pasta ($6.50-$8.00), antipasti ($9.95), the daily stir fry ($8.95), grilled-to-order fish ($8.95-$11.95) and an assortment of good-looking sandwiches ($7.95), salads, soups and dessert.
Most people seemed very pleased with the changes, especially given they're coming from an institution of the ROM's size. It's sad to think that the food here is probably healthier than any of Toronto's hospitals (not that the ROM deserves to be compared to a hospital) and the approach more progressive. Aside from their eat-local focus (popularized in the Omnivore's Dilemma and other books), the Food Studio also provides biodegradable containers and plates to cut down on the waste.
