And then, we even got a mini tour of the kitchen, shook hands with the Chef and really felt like a lucky couple for having each other for all these years and being treated really nice @ Graham Elliot. OK, I had to show him my tattoo since he and I have the same damn one which resulted in a conversation like this:
Sous Chef: Bullshit, he doesn’t have one like yours!
Chef: Check it out…
Sous Chef: Ha! He does! Cool!
It’s my kind of place, from the food, decor, vibe, service and music. We’ll be going back and I encourage each and every one of you to go as well.
