Europe and Latin America do not share a border on most reputable maps, but for more than 15 years, they have converged at The Globe in the middle of Coral Gables. There, chef de cuisine Martin Taylor and sous chef Jacques Blacques make room on their menu for New England fish and chips and Argentinean churrasco, as well as pastas and hand-tossed pizzas. Throughout the day, alert noses might detect aromas of spanish chorizo, wasabi, and cognac-spiced dijon sauce suffusing the pub.
That eclectic edible geography is reflected in the décor. Vintage globes line the shelf above the polished wood bar, and mollify diners who refuse to accept the existence of a new Zealand. A curved staircase with a wrought-iron railing—reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa—provides a similar centerpiece to the bistro tables spread across the weathered wood floors. Resident musical director Rodolfo Zuniga adds to the atmosphere with live American and Latin jazz performances, which fill the restaurant with guitar licks and twinkling piano late into the night. Miami.com has praised the "great selection of rare wines." Likewise, the Miami New Times describes The Globe as "an ideal place to meet for happy hour."
