Sunday, January 17

opening weekend


here is an image of the 64 dining room. it's very pretty during the dinner time, candles everywhere, and good music playing. the bar is beautiful with old heavy wood and a large mirror. the space was originally the island drugstore, and the walls are all drawers, and mahogany panels, tin ceiling.
so, friday night we opened, and i was feeling pretty rusty. we got a bit of a slam right off the bat, and food was coming out a bit slow. no complaints about that as everyone was having such a good time. saturday night was lively, and the pace was perfect with two-tops coming in, then some larger parties, then by the end of the evening the place was all full with people sitting at their tables enjoying wine, food and conversation, laughing, and the bar was a few folks deep. it was magical.

Hooray for "Chef Lisa"! You've found camaraderie and fun even in January...in Maine...on an island. (e.g. achieved the impossible)

I salute you, Madam.
