Globe Bistro, Toronto

My present visit to Globe just happened to coincide with "Summerlicious". This is a mid-summer "celebration" when the resto community opens up to the general public with set menus and simply composed dishes, all for a very reasonable cost, to give new visitors a taste of what the resto does. For example, a 3 course meal with 2 possible selections for each course, all for $35.00. Fortunately at Globe, they had a few extras for me and my guests to indulge in and I cherry picked everything that was available that appealed to me.

Cod croquettes with sauce gribiche, house made potato crisps and frisee.

Chorizo and shrimp "paella": puffed rice, saffron broth, green bean salad, parsley and aioli.

Chilled corn soup, cilantro foam, espelette pepper and lime. A very tasty soup but a somewhat heavy hand with the salt.

A very well composed garden salad with marinated zucchini, tomatoes, sugar snap peas, gem lettuce, dill emulsion and fresh sheeps milk cheese (which I asked not to be included).

NO PHOTO: Fogo Island cod and snow crab with cod cheek and snow crab en gelee,lettuce hearts, sliced radish and confit garlic emulsion. A very good dish.

Pistachio dukka crusted lamb loin with charred eggplant puree, toasted bulgar salad, spinach and honey-brown butter sauce.

NO PHOTO: "Summer feast": chickpea puree, marinated eggplant, green beans, cherry tomatoes, puffed wild grains and spiced yogurt. This was a very well composed and very tasty vegetarian dish. Once again, unfortunately, a bit of a heavy hand with the salt in the chickpea puree.

Summer peach crumble with camomile mousse.
