Two Small Home Restaurants

Last weekend we hosted two small Home Restaurants, one a get together of old college friends another was a birthday celebration.  Both groups were a pleasure!  As of late we have had lots of wine lovers dining here who have come with their own wines.  Usually Tom, the wine importer we work with brilliantly matches wines with our menus.  Happily we have a few on the books, in the near future, that we will be working with him on.  The  group last Saturday night did a fabulous job of thoughtfully matching the menu with wines from their cellars...And brought me the awesome drink caddy that I used as a flower container in the photo for this post...Thanks!!!
