The space is starting to resemble a real restaurant. Among other things, the kitchen now has a shiny new prep table, a deep fryer for Eddy’s irresistible panisse, and two brand new burner ranges.
And in the dining room something magical is taking shape. All the pieces that will fill this room and bring it to life have been coming together bit by bit in the imaginative workshop of Alter Ego. Last night we got the first installment of our seats, light fixtures, and wall panels. Having seen these pieces in various stages at the workshop, we’ve been astounded by the craftsmanship of Mozart’s crew before. But here in the space and attuned to the surroundings, the pieces felt like a mound of treasure we were unearthing for the very first time. We couldn’t stop grinning from ear to ear.
