BRUNCH SPOT #2: KITCHEN STEP

apologies in advance for not snapping pictures of the actual meals:

• smoked salmon tostado w/ everything cream cheese & petite greens
• hangar steak & eggs w/ crispy smashed potatoes 

I went to brunch this past wknd with my boyfriend. when him and I go out to eat, I don't like to take pictures of my food.  (hence why there are no images of the actual food.) that time is designated for ustalking, laughing, interacting...not for me to take instagram-worthy shots of my food. 

we both knew I couldn't resist capturing the restaurant's branding and decor, so I didn't feel too bad when I took a picture of the kitchen step's tabletop. I have a great appreciation for a company that truly knows who they are and what they stand for, and this restaurant has that down pat. 

the intimate welcoming vibes were not only represented in their comforting decor, but in their freshly cooked plates as well. even if I did want to get a picture of mine and my boyfriend's meals, I would've missed the moment because we ate them faster than I'd like to admit...
