What you do you when your sweet newish friend invites you to a dinner, served family-style, prepared by her chef of a husband (literally) at a fun nearby restaurant? Why, you eat so much bacon-wrapped pate, octopus salad, grilled shiitakes, rotisserie lamb, and beets in shallot vinaigrette that you're full well into the next day. But not too full to eat the leftovers that you took home in a moment of greed the night before. Yum.

Oh Suzy,

Your dinner sounded amazing! I hope Barry was able to enjoy the dinner too even if it was just from what you brought home!

I am with Shari though who asked what did you have for dessert????

The restaurant interior looked spectacular and the write-up of the chef, his culinary education and previous experience was terrific - perfect for a Bon Appetit article! Love, Mom
