"Think Global. Eat Local!" Globe Bistro takes their motto seriously, sourcing ingredients locally then preparing them with creativity and flair. Although the glory days of the Globe have passed and they no longer have locations all around Toronto, this spot has enough clout to stick around. With a passion for the local movement, menus change frequently, but you might find wild salmon with crab-sweet pea risotto, heirloom beet salad, butter-poached ribeye with house-smoked ketchup, or sweetbreads with ricotta gnocchi and bacon. Choose a wine from the restaurant's extensive list of local VQA selections - premium bottles are half-priced on Sundays - or bring your own wine for a modest corkage fee. Even if the food and drink wasn't so good, the space alone, with 16 foot ceilings, wood floors and stunning artistic accents, would make Globe well worth a visit.
- Farm to Table: "Globe serves a popular brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays. You'll find everything from house-made granola with sheep's milk yogurt, to a burger, to the Swine and Dine - which features three eggs and pork prepared six ways."
- Best for Farm to Table Because: A glamorous, chandelier-filled room with unpretentious food that pays homage to provenance.
