Hot Dining: Mideastro is a Medley Maker

Mideastro's lamb and beef kufta

In North America, the term fusion as it pertains to food typically means that the cuisine of one ostensibly “exotic” region—Japan, South America, and heck, even France—has been somehow been reconceived to appeal to familiar, North American tastes. Not so, however, at Mideastro, a restaurant that draws together the flavours of the Middle East—Israel in particular—and Mediterranean countries such as Italy, Greece and Morocco. Stylish and sophisticated in Yorkville, its menu is thoroughly upper crust, featuring refined takes on lamb and beef kufta ($29), baked snapper with harisa-flavoured risotto ($34) and more. As you might imagine, bland palates need not apply.
