Sunday "Farmers Menu" at Globe

Robert Lauriston | Jan 25, 2010 03:32 PM

We went to Globe last night for the "farmers menu," $39 prix-fixe, four courses, three choices in each. There were enough of us to order and try everything. Standouts were a pizza with crescenza and speck, lasagne (wide fresh noodles) with a great calamari ragú, lamb osso buco with green olive tapenade, roast quail with polenta and a Madeira liver sauce, and particularly the soup, which was described on the menu as "pork shoulder, hominy, and cabbage," but much to my surprise was the best pozole I've had outside of Mexico. We asked about the corn because it was just like in Mexico, they make it with Rancho Gordo hominy. I can see why the chef didn't call it pozole, as it was more broth and less starch and meat than you'd normally get in a Mexican restaurant, and it was an appetizer portion. Good desserts, too. The menu changes every week so there's no guarantee any of those dishes will show up, on the other hand any of them might turn up on the regular menu (which is also available on Sunday).

Overall, good value. The wine list is very California-centric, corkage is $20.
