Opened last summer as a Euro-style cafe-bar on the lesser-trafficked west end of the Belmont strip, the Globe is claiming its place as a comfortable neighborhood roost that pays proper attention to detail. The food is excellent, with choices of gourmet pizza ($12 and up), soups and sandwiches (pulled pork is recommended). But it’s the cocktails that should keep the local barflies coming back, as co-owner Paul DiNapoli continually perfects his recipes for classics like the Waldorf, Rob Roy and Bourbon Ginger.
