For those nights when you get a late start dining out in San Francisco, late night eatery Globe can be a lifesaver. At Globe, you can sit down to a perfectly roasted chicken, the irresistible pizza du jour, fancy mac and cheese, or a big T-bone steak at midnight. Even if it isn’t late, Globe makes a fine choice for dinner. The exposed brick walls of the historic building set off the artwork nicely and lend satisfying texture to the otherwise simple-chic, Lower East Side-style décor. A stylish local crowd makes the scene, which is peppered with foodies getting off work as the night wears on. The compact room can get noisy, but the close quarters also make it festive when crowded. Despite its name, Globe serves down-home California comfort food, including a deservedly famous salad lardon and tuna tartare with tapenade. The space, comprised mostly of the metal and exposed brick now known as “industrial chic,” has long been a destination post-shift watering hole for FiDi chefs. The scene doesn’t get interesting until after 10pm. Sunday night farm dinners feature local abbondanza and lure Mission and SoMa types; other nights look for pre-partiers headed to 5A5.
