For example, before you "walk into the lobby of the restaurant", folks might enjoy seeing the view from the road and the view from the lower parking lot.
You know that lower parking lot, mitchells ... the one you were staring at during your meal (I can't believe they did that to you. So unfair. I truly sorry about that ! )
The real problem is that they get SO MANY of my friends coming thru that they got a real problem with allocating their best real-estate.
So mitchells, next time be sure to tell them that you are my VERY VERY good friend and then do that secret handshake thing that I PMed you about and only then will you be totally golden and get the good view ... or maybe you're just a total gentleman and gave the wife and daughter the best views ... come to think of it, that could be it ... oh my goodness, mitchells must actually be in love to give up a view like this ... that's incredible ... this love shit is real and it exists in the wild ! )
But we all appreciate that you took one for the team because it allows us to mention that you were looking at the former location of the gastro resto that has now become a more casual eating option and a large banquet hall ... but Chambo says unambiguously Go Gastro !
Okay ... so as you were saying "You walk into the lobby of the restaurant" and you see the following ... assuming you are the last to arrive ... cuz they clean up after everyone pretty quickly after that quick picnic and keep the place pretty spotless ...
And that picnic basket can keep on changing each time you show up but no need to dwell on that when there's a full kitchen to enter.
I presume that you went into the kitchen PRIOR to the meal starting* because I think everyone does and I do see you have that nice pic looking into their war room.
* this happens a bit in the Basque ... seems as though some of these gastro kitchen pros enjoying having their team shout hello to their future guinea pigs
Once inside, what's quite nice is to take a close sneak peak at the ingredients on display and see if they are to your liking or not ... and if so then be sure to include them when ordering even if it requires a mix and match from the two menus. That's a little Chambo trick that I enjoy employing every now and then.
For example, here are some hunks of hake pre-bake ...
And here is the fish post-fry (yeah, I know, it wasn't really pre-bake, but it rhymes ... R-Tiste and all, ya know ...)
To be exact, that's Fried Hake, Roasted Pepper Infusion and Parsley ...
And it's an ethereal fry in this case ... (but I do understand that some will find this quite ordinary but I'm cool with that ...)
With the interior cooked to perfection ...
