One of Perth’s oldest restaurants, when The Globe announced they would be reopening their doors at 140, we were both excited and intrigued.
Once the historic entry statement to the City of Perth, the space backs onto Globe Lane and overlooks the soon to be competed Yagan’s Square on Wellington Street. It’s split into three distinct areas—the bar, the eatery and the lane—and despite having only been open for a month, The Globe already feels like a really natural fit for 140 and this vibrant corner of the Perth CBD.
Walking into The Globe’s Eatery, I was blown away by how beautiful the space is. The plush leather booths and marble tabletops give the space a modern, stylish feel but with no hint of pretentiousness. I sat down and decided I never wanted to leave. Then our waiter brought out the menu and my decision was made… The Globe would be my new home.
The menu at The Eatery is an equal collaboration between Executive Chef Graham Arthur of Il Lido, E Cucina and Balthazar fame, and Head Chef Alexandra Haynes. I think its safe to say that these two are a match made in foodie heaven.
With entree dishes like octopus and chorizo, fried haloumi with watermelon and harissa and fresh carpaccio topped with pistachio and peach, it was no wonder we couldn’t decide what to order. We handballed the responsibility of choosing over to our waiter and I thanked the heavens that we had a big group so I could taste a good chunk of the menu.
The entrees most definitely did not disappoint. Flavourful, punchy and delicious, everything we had was so.freaking.yummy.
We were in the same pickle with mains—the chicken fat potatoes were a no-brainer obvi—but how were we to decide between the Tasmanian salmon, steak or deliciously tender lamb? Answer: we didn’t. My advice to you? Get one of everything, I promise you won’t regret it!
Not being big dessert people here at TUL, we decided we would skip that course… haha just kidding. There was no way we were leaving without seeing if the desserts lived up to the seriously high standards set by the entrees and mains.
All I want to say about dessert is this. Oh. My. God. Do not leave The Globe without tasting the lemon saffron cheesecake. I don’t even like cheesecake and this was kinda like biting into a cloud of happiness. My only regret is that I didn’t order one to myself.
No matter what you think you like or don’t like, The Globe will win you over. As perfect for a long lunch with the girls as a date night or work lunch, this place might just become your new fave hang out.
