We’ve started a new thing – weekend early dinner at Elizabeth Street Cafe. Not every weekend, but just at about 5pm, when there’s no wait and we can sit at the counter looking out over the patio. We joke that we’re senior citizens, because we prefer to go out for dinner at 5 or 6pm, but we avoid waits, we often get happy hour prices, and we come home and eat dinner #2 at 10pm anyway. :)
Have you been to Elizabeth Street Cafe? I fought it for a long time. It’s so expensive! It’s just Vietnamese food! It’s just cutesy and not great! But no. It’s SO good. Everything is crazy fresh and delicious and locally sourced and beautifully presented. And at 5pm, the light at the window seat is lovely.
I’m breaking the rules AGAIN – these photos are from my iPhone! (gasp)
