After last night's service, 2009 is officially in the can and we are taking a short break to get ready for 2010. 2009 certainly was an interesting year and I'm looking forward to what 2010 has in store for us, but right now, it's a bunch of blank pieces of paper in my notebook. Here's wishing all of you health, happiness, good eating and drinking in 2010.
Just a couple of housekeeping points:
1) We reopen January 22nd. Make your reservations NOW. Yes, the notebook above is blank, but do you really think I don't have some cool ideas floating around in my head?
2) The restaurant is closed, but the answering machine is on. PLEASE leave reservation requests for our opening weekends and Valentine's weekend on the machine. The requests will be taken on a first come, first served basis and confirmed after Karen and I return from our southern swing. Yes, as of the end of service last night, we already had a good deal of reservations for Valentine's weekend. You don't want to be that guy calling around the day before expecting to get a table, do you?
3) Let's make 2010 the year of the saturday evening tasting menu. It is by far the best way to experience the full scope of our experience and it's a crazy good DEAL to boot!
