GLOWBAL Grill – 50% off lunch entrees in January

The newly rebranded “Glowbal Grill – Steaks & Satay” (1079 Mainland Street) is offering 50% off lunch entrees for the rest of January:

Executive Chef Erik Heck has created new menu favourites. With addition of ‘steak’ to our moniker, the focus is on prime cuts of beef. Our new restaurant features a ‘Meat Cellar’ – essentially a glass-walled meat cooler, displaying aged cuts of beef: ribeyes, striploins and tenderloins. When steaks are selected they will be pulled down and butchered to order.

The new menus are a ‘globally inspired’ combination of regional and exotic ingredients. Although steaks take centre stage, seafood, a variety of sizzling satays, and glowbal’s famous spaghetti and Kobe meatballs remain menu staples

Society Dining Lounge – now open in Yaletown

Earlier this month, the Glowbal Group’s newest initiative “Society” (1257 Hamilton Street) opened in Yaletown. With the tagline of “Opposites Attract. The Unexpected Reigns”, Society most definitely has unique, unexpected menu offerings!! Described as a “union of opposites”, the menu offers comfort food – but with a twist.

So for example, classic tomato soup accompanied by mini grilled cheese sandwiches (hmm, following the “tapas” trend?), Mac & Cheese balls (think crabcake style), apple pie with vanilla ice cream and a Nutella milkshake (spiked with Baileys). As for prices, Society’s express lunch menu is a pretty good deal. Less than $10 for sandwich-y types of food. Also, several of their menu items contain cotton candy as an ingredient, including on their drinks menu, the “Candy Collins” which is probably the most creative drink I’ve ever had. It came with a generous fluff of cotton candy on top, and I was advised by the bartender that I could either eat it plain, or melt it into my gin to sweeten as desired.

SOCIETY Dining Lounge – opens October 29, 2009

The Glowbal Group’s newest initiative, SOCIETY Dining Lounge (1257 Hamilton Street), opens next Thursday, October 29th. With its slogan “Opposites Attracts”, this restaurant promises a contrast between glamour and comfort, with cuisine that embodies the union of opposites. For example, childhood staples are given a modern twist with “refined, inventive ingredients”. Look out for their Tomato Soup with Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Shake n’ Bake Chicken.

Décor boldly contrasts glamour with comfort. Its 40-seat street-side patio with eggplant-hued leather banquettes and wicker chairs lend a feel of Sunset Strip to the loading-dock sidewalks of Hamilton Street. Inside is where SOCIETY comes together. Overhead, two oversized electric pink, handcrafted Mod-Murano chandeliers set the tone. Below, snug banquettes of deep purple and pearly leather, and tufted black-leather bar stools with striking gold legs set apart the more casual brasserie chairs. Upstairs in the lounge, up-lit bronze acrylic panels line the back wall and combine with an eclectic mix of lounge seating options. Bronze toned wooden screens of geometric interlocking circles surround the double height space, separating the lounge from the dining area below, creating allure and a sense of mystery.
