Sharing a meal with loved ones is a way to connect, create memories, and discover which family member has been a robot all along. Refuel your clan with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of New American cuisine at Globe Restaurant.
Tucked in the heart of the Financial District, Globe Restaurant strikes a gastronomical jackpot by fashioning its New American menu of homemade pizzas, piping-hot, handmade pastas, and fresh seafood from an array of sustainable, farm-fresh products. Diners plumbing the dinner menu can dive mouth first into an arugula salad ($8) before spearing a wild king salmon, which pairs salsa verde with boccacino pasta ($24) for an amalgamation even more memorable than the Continental Congress's alliance with the 1992 Dream Team. A dulcet quartet of pizzas shepherd fresh panoplies of gourmet ingredients—including sopressata, truffle oil, and roasted spring onions—onto their doughy pastures ($16 each).
A wine menu mingles a sophisticated selection of local and globetrotting vinos, lubricating palates before such decadent gourmet desserts as chocolate coffee cake and brown-sugar cheesecake ($8 each). Midday diners can relax as they peruse a similar lunch menu that brims with salads, soups, and seafood, taking a nice breather from daily office activities of filing papers and jousting on horseback. Sunday nights find the Globe’s intimate dining room home to a four-course prix fixe farmer’s supper ($39/person), a veritable feast festooned with more farm freshness than a shrink-wrapped copy of American Gothic.
