Reinvented several years later as Bistro VG, the restaurant now boasts a cleaner, more modern vibe (limestone counters, white tile mosaic, milk glass, raw linen), and along with the fabulous full-course meals of yesteryear, now features a selection of smaller plates, in sync with the way most of us dine today. With our busy lives, we find ourselves eating out more often, and as such, are less likely to splurge. So a selection of inventively prepared gourmet tidbits appeals.
So, yes, I am getting more brave and slightly more outspoken about what I need, but am still treading lightly so as not to stand out as an oddball. I really am very grateful for every effort to accommodate my veggie choice.
About the photo -- those who follow may have noticed I have not posted in a few days. I have been working on this post for too long because I am trying to teach myself about photo editing and importing, etc. As background, now that school is out I have to compete with my 12 year old who needs the camera for sleepovers. I tried using my phone, but it has no flash. So the above was taken by my husband, from his phone, and obviously upside-down after a cocktail or two of his own. You should have seen the photo after I had it all perfectly cropped in landscape format, the contrast balanced, the colors and lighting just right . . . well, no matter how I save the end result, even re-naming it, when I put it in the blog it is back to it's original orientation, dark, upside down and sideways and in portrait format. I decided to stop wasting time on it since I really miss writing the blog, and you can still see the food even though it is upside down. Thanks for your patience as I work out my camera conundrum. Hey, maybe a new camera for my birthday?
P.S. 6/7/10-- I figured out how to rotate the photo!
