'Restaurant Week'

(Meryl, Amanda and John
start their 'Ironman Triathlon'
training in earnest;
iPhone camera is out-of-focus
and Mr. White fires
our intrepid cub reporter.)

Persephone Restaurant
115 East 60th Street
Between Lex and Park

Thursday,
January 29, 2008
2:00 - 3:30 PM
33 F Degrees

8 images

2 (Amanda and Meryl)




3 (Strangely, the olives and Meryl's martini are separate....)




4 (...and Meryl wonders why John is eating all  the olives....)





5 (Graceful segue here: 'Nice ceiling beams they have, don't you think?')




6 (Disgustedly, the nice waiter snatches the iPhone away from a mortified John and takes the one decent photo.
   Meryl's Moussaka wins, Amanda's grilled cheese appetizer lovely, Mahi Mahi healthy. Plataforma coming soon!)





7 (An artful dessert: 'Rice Pudding and Cappucccino' by Wayne Thiebaud)




8 (Look deeply into the rice pudding...deep....)




Urp!

I knew I shouldn't have shoved that piece of bread in my mouth before the waiter took the picture.  ::)

But so gracefully, Meryl!

Thank you (and to Amanda!) for a lovely afternoon--so civilized--as always!

Hi John!  Thanks for these wonderful pictures!  Even though some of them are a little out of focus... I think they're very nice.  It's always a good thing to document lovely Brokie get-togethers.  I'm so happy that our luncheon worked out. It really was civilized!  It was great to sit down in the middle of the day and have a nice glass of wine and a thee course meal.  And, of course just having the chance to see both of you was the real treat. 

The restaurant was a nice pick!  I loved my sheep's milk grilled cheese salad... very unique and very tasty.  And, LOL it's so great that I ate sheep's milk for my appetizer and you had bean soup... so Brokeback appropriate!

I'm sorry that Meryl and I didn't get snapshots of our vegetarian dinner from the night before.  So, it's a great treat to have these lunch pics for the memory books.

*I guess!

(And I guess I need to buy a camera instead of,
you know, a phone. )



But it really was a lovely afternoon, thanks to you and Meryl!

Thank you, both!  :)



There's a short coda--and, yes, Amanda really won the Jimmy Olsen Award this time--her photos are in focus. Look:



Hi John and Meryl!
Last night I remembered that I took some pictures at the restaurant last week too, and I thought I'd pass them along.
:)

cheers!
Amanda

 :-*  Thanks John!  I'm very honored to receive the Jimmy Olsen Award!  I'll display it on my mantlepiece.  :D

Really I think it was mostly good luck that they came out in focus.  My cell phone camera has such a delay between when you click and when the picture is snapped... it can be a bit unpredictable how things turn out.
