We received word that Joseph Manzare’s ~GLOBE~, which he opened with wife and partner Mary Klingbeil in 1997 and was such a late-night hangout and industry spot for years, has sadly closed its doors. He reportedly lost his lease and the restaurant had its last night on Saturday May 30th. We have reached out to Joseph for details and will let you know when we hear more from him directly. 290 Pacific Ave. at Front.
The Marina location of ~UDUPI PALACE~ has closed, according to a hawk-eyed tablehopper reader. A sign in the window says a new restaurant called Kobani Mediterranean Grill is opening soon in the space. No word on exactly what happened, but we have to guess the labor violation fines the restaurant was hit with earlier this year had something to do with it. The mini-chain’s Mission and Berkeley locations remain open. 3242 Scott St. at Chestnut.
