He was so excited to see the book, tearing off the protective plastic cover and thumbing through the pages. He enjoyed the photo of his creme puffs, loved the concept of the book and the quality. And he has lots of ideas for marketing his restaurant and the book, including family-style meals reminiscent of the 1950's. A time for families to be talking and sharing their experiences of the day at the dinner table (sans cell phones). His enthusiasm is contagious!
Fortunately, we had a reservation for lunch since people were turned away at the door. The Spicery gets very busy and no wonder . . . the food and service were wonderful.
Whatever you do, don't skip the decadent desserts.
