Drink This: Rock Lobster’s Ribbons and Swallows

Following in the footsteps of La Carnita, Rock Lobster Food Co. is the city’s second TUM favourite that’s opened a mother ship to seemingly endless fanfare. Like its somewhat meatier cousin, Rock Lobster has a rowdy atmosphere, thanks to tunes that match its name, plus plenty of boozy cocktails — not to mention the wine on tap.

Created by Josh Lindley (previously of Campagnolo), the cocktail list is packed with seaworthy picks including a Caesar ($12) flagged with a half lobster tail. We however, opted for a slightly more tropical concoction: the Ribbons and Swallows ($10). Rife with Sailor Jerry rum, Aperol, coconut syrup and passion fruit juice, this fruity-with-a-kick drink conjures up beachy visions, bringing the summer sun a wee bit closer.

Restaurant Review: Chef Steve Gonzalez is back with his gigantic new King West eatery

Cherry-picking the menu works really well. Some of the fusion items, where East meets Latin, are really fun. Chef’s suite of ceviches are superbly entertaining: we’re captivated by the variegated flavours of tiraditos, raw tuna napped in passion fruit and lulo sauce, with black and white sesame seeds, chili-studded purée of butternut squash and baby greens.

Post-ROM sips at Museum Tavern

Blink and you’ll miss Museum Tavern. Squirreled upstairs and across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum sits the suitably named brasserie. The charming space has been satiating museum goers since it opened back in 2012.
