Larry and I grabbed the Groupon for York Street a month ago or so and then my wonderful sister gave me a gift certificate there - so we knew we had to get to my favorite restaurant - and we even get to go a couple of times!
As we were waiting for a table - they told us to check out the gallery upstairs. Gallery? What? WHO KNEW?! The owners wife is an artist and has a great variety of paintings. We had to check it out.
On the way up the stairs we found this - I knew I was in for a treat! I love this!
This was in the stairwell - but the room itself - well all the lights were off! So rather than head back downstairs and have them turn the lights on - we had FUN WITH THE FLASH! We just walked around the room in the dark and took pictures.
First up - aw - kitty & puppy!
The view of the city is great - we were up on the 3rd floor of the building. This would make an amazing loft apartment.
Seriously - fantastic apartment possibilities! I guess the other half of the building does have an apartment and the staff said it's phenomenal.
I am in love with this one! When we went back downstairs, the owner gave us a book to look at of his wife's art. It was great - she does custom art based on photos. We saw the real photos of Connie and her dog to match these paintings. I would love to have one of me and Larry!
Very fun and whimsical!
We felt like members of the mob with the secret peep hole in the door so I made Larry pose for a picture. We decided to head back downstairs and check out the 2nd floor.
Santa and his reindeer are up year round...very festive!
Finally our table was ready!
Why Should You Go? Well I've said before that I love this place! While I didn't love my tuna - it's still at the top of my list. Plus - if you go - be sure to check out the gallery upstairs. It's a wonderful date spot - cozy and intimate are two key words to describe York St!
VOTE IN THE POLL! Check the top left of the site - there's a poll on what restaurant I should go to for the letter C! I can't wait to find out where you send me!! A & B have been AWESOME! (B was Bangkok Bistro - review coming tomorrow!) I grabbed a nice variety from the letter C - Ethnic (Cumin & Chung Kiwha), Pricey Fancy (Celestial) and Homey (Campbells Barn, Clough Crossing). Where will you send me?! Vote now! Voting ends Friday!
I am really loving this journey and I'm only on the letter C. I've decided that YOU will select every restaurant for me and I will ONLY have restaurants I haven't been to! Vote Vote Vote!
