I live in the neighborhood, and I think I've been to just about every restaurant in the area. I like steak and wine, but due to my schedule, it was always closing every time I stopped by. I had tonight off, so was able to go early enough, and also knew there would be live entertainment.
I sat at the bar, talking a bit to Dawn the bartender, and some of her Jersey friends of 20 years were gathered at the end. I was totally introduced to each and every one of them, and though they've been longtime friends, that didn't stop them from including a stranger and making him feel welcome. And very genuinely, foo. I felt like I knew them forever, myself.
As for the meal, my steak and wine were great, too, and needless to say I think I've found a new favorite place to eat and hang out. Thanks Dawn! ;-)
