This is the Day

I’ve said before that a restaurant can change one’s life.

welcome-to-la-tavola

I may might not have specified which restaurant, and I think perhaps I was thinking collectively:  Prune, TopFlr, La Tavola, Osteria al Doge, Devon’s.

Tonight, my thinking was reaffirmed.   I ate with Kris at the bar at LaTavola.  I dined solo.  Kris, my friend and former co-worker, poured my drinks.  She was happy, in a good space despite recent loss.  We talked about life and important things and reconnected and realized our love for each other and our friends.  And this place.   This service.  This process.  This family.

And I dined in what I consider a holy temple.

A temple of friendship, hospitality, encouragement, forgiveness, creativity, refuge and respite.

And a place that continues to inform my life.
