When pondering where to dine last week on an especially sweltering
I racked my brain for one of those restaurants that serves
By that I mean gazpacho, vichyssoise, salads,
and dishes made with
bright-coloured ingredients like lemon, lobster,
basil and tomatoes.
But Montreal is going through a he-man food phase
right now, so lately I'm faced with ribs, steaks, duck legs and pig's
heads all paired with some form of crispy potato. Isn't any chef in
this city up to reinventing the Waldorf salad? Sheesh.
Anyway, when narrowing choices I ended up with an Italian restaurant that didn't have a spot on their terrace, and Globe one of those glitzy restaurants on the Main does the lion's share of its business during Grand Prix weekend and after 10pm.
So Globe it was, primarily because I had no idea what to expect.
