    Happy belated anniversary to the both of you! What a cool looking place. I love the all white decor. And now I’m really intrigued by the crostini and wonder if I can replicate it at home since it’s no longer available on the menu.

    What a sweet, and I really mean sweet, gift for Jake. Anyone would love cupcakes!

    Thank you, Darlene! The crostini was pretty simple, I bet you could remake it easily enough. Needed more honey though!

  3. Happy Anniversary to you guys! May you have many more to come! 🙂

    I’ve heard of this place…One of my GBF’s recommended it. I never would have thought the inside looked that nice and swanky!

    I like the look of Jake’s pizza with that gigantor garlic head in the middle!

  4. The restaurant looks lovely. Ha! I was forced as a child to have to travel to North Park as a child to attend Hebrew School for years. I and all my friends absolutely hated it, with more than passion. We hated it more than we hated anything else in the world; point being, my gosh, how things have changed not only in NP, but in San Diego obviously throughout. (Of course, being born and raised there, each new “change” is and remains to this day cringing.)

    Be that as it may, congratulations on your 5th anniversary and glad you were able to celebrate it in style albeit there were some shortcomings as to the menu. The tossed Spicy Linguine Pasta, Manila Clams, White Wine, Garlic & Pancetta looks scrumptious.

    However, in these chi-chi type places, the prices are inversely correlated with the size of the portions, sadly.

    Hi CC – Thanks! Yeah, it doesn’t look that swanky on the outside, but inside it sure is nice. I also ate a good bit of that garlic!

    Hi David – Yeah, a lot of places around town have gotten a lot trendier – North Park is a supreme example of that as well as Downtown! Thanks 🙂
