I'm kind of surprised that when I searched for Globe on this board nothing came up.

I had a wonderful dinner there the other night. The menu is chock full of the best in class artisnal producers of ingredients and in the few dishes we had the kitchen treated the ingredients with the proper respect.

We shared a salad & I don't remember the name of who grew the lettuce, asian pears, cheese. sorry. though it was delicious.

risotto w/ stinging nettles ($8)- I really enjoyed it my partner didn't but maybe nettles are more of an acquired taste (i have acquired said taste.)

pasta w/ oven roasted tomatoes- I am always disappointed by restaurants that always have insalata caprese on the menu year round- i don't know whether to blame the chef/rest. or diner(hey if the demand is there...)- that salad has no bidness being there in the dead of winter. Otoh yes you can roast a tomato this time of yr. in CA. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce good & tasty. very warm & comforting on a cold night.

We also had mariquita farms broccoli di ceeco ($5)- outstanding- sweet w/ a slght bit of bitterness.

We didn't have dessert though I regretted it later. the menu looked yummy.

Since I moved to kosher eating lately most of what I eat out is vegetarian (and for a foodie- it's a major sacrifice)- fortunately there was plenty on this menu to satisfy.

The wine list was extensive and we found a reasonably priced 1/2 bottle of edna valley syrah for $18, a delish syrah I'll look for it retail. My only slight negative is that the waiters were quite low talkers and the rest. a little loud and I wish I could understand more than 1/2 of what he said but...
I think total tab was $70 tip incl if memory serves
