Lunch at the Globe
I just had a very odd lunch at the Globe in Berlin, Md., an old movie theater that's been turned into a restaurant and bar. It's an interesting space, but it would really work better for dinner or late night, not lunch on a lovely spring day. It was very dark, with stairways and mezzanines that were sort of Escher-like.
I want to stop by the Tea by the Sea Tearoom later, so I ate light, a Thai peanut salad. For $9 I got a bowl of greens with grapes, dry-roasted peanuts, a lot of chow mein noodles, and a Thai peanut dressing.
I asked for bread with it, which turned out to be listed under appetizers: three pieces of cornbread for $3 or five for $5. It came with Grand Marnier butter, and when you spread the butter on, the general effect was like cornbread cake with Grand Marnier buttercream icing.
I want a Sofi's crepe.
