Luma on Halloween

On the night before Halloween, I had a very lovely meal at Luma, O&B's latest venture. There was quite a bit of hype around this restaurant, so I was very excited to try it out.The dimly lit restaurant had an elegant ambiance with simple, clean designs.
Some warm bread to start.
Ricotta Gnocchi: light tomato fondue, basil, sunchokes and roasted garlic. The use of ricotta instead of potato made the gnocchi softer and lighter, although it was still a very filling dish. The pasta itself was cheesy and well-complemented by the delicious tomato broth.
We asked for some ketchup to accompany the truffle fries. However, our server informed us that they actually don't have any ketchup (I guess O&B doesn't deign to serve commercial ketchup?) but offered us a spicy, cocktail dip instead. It worked perfectly well, and the sweet dip went well with the salty crunch of the sprinkled salt.
Steak Frites: luma pepper rub, northern woods mushrooms and truffle butter. The meat was cooked perfectly and the juice was very tasty. I couldn't get enough of the spinach that soaked up that delicious juice.
Opera Cake: almond sponge cake with layers of mocha buttercream and chocolate ganache with popcorn ice cream and caramel popcorn. Such a playful dessert that is so fitting with the restaurant's location at the TIFF Lightbox. Caramel popcorn was pretty ordinary, and I couldn't really taste "popcorn" from the ice cream. I did, however, loved the chocolate pop rocks! It was a really fun dessert to wrap up the meal.
