It's All Good

I wasn't going to blog today, but I have this picture of my lunch from yesterday and thought that I'd share. I recently learned that a friend of mine works right near me. We decided to have lunch at Ivy. I was curious to see the consistency of the service and the food since I last visited. I'm still impressed with both.

I wasn't up for anything dramatic to eat. Plus I think the mark of a skilled cook in general and of a good restaurant is to see how nicely they can prepare something that is very simple. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and gazpacho. I loved the presentation! The food was really good and so was the conversation. What a nice treat!

*Updated 10/19/2010* I just read some bad news. It looks like Ivy is closing. The website is still up though, so maybe there's still hope.

What, no hippo? It's very good with grilled cheese!

(That's sort of an inside joke between Anali and myself. Nobody else will probably get it. Oh, well.)

Thanks for stopping by! I haven't heard from you in awhile. What u've been up to?

Well, you know what i've been up to. I'm glad the performance is over. With rehearsals and my crazy schedule it was getting to be too much. I hope things gett poppin with the music soon so I can maybe take the day job off or at least pay off my school loans soon...maybe i should stop spending my money!

Some co-workers and I had an interesting conversation about good restaurants yesterday, and I have realized that I ain't seen nothin' yet since my relocation!!! The new restaurants I've been to are just a drop in the bucket compared to the ones I haven't been to!!!

I might have to write a post about them as I get a chance to try them out :)
