Looking for a leisurely lunch near AGO or Union Station

My husband and I are coming into town on Thursday to take in the Diego & Frida exhibit at the AGO, and would like to have our annual "Christmas Lunch" afterward. This has become a "splurge meal" tradition for us - we're willing to spend up to $100/person, and would prefer to take our time enjoying a few glasses of wine and ideally sharing several small plates.
We're probably about a 7/10 on the adventurous scale. I'm not a huge seafood fan, but he is - oysters would get bonus marks from him.
We'd also like to be either close to Union/Go station or easy access to TTC. We've enjoyed the wine bar on Church in the past, but I'd like to try something different this year.
I appreciate your suggestions!

  1. Why not eat at Frank in the AGO?

      I would recommend the same thing. It is a lovely spot and good food.

    2. I like Biff's for lunch.
      Oysters might be available at lunch. They're usually available at dinner time.

      Frank's food hasn't been impressing me much the last couple visits.
