Anticipation: following the blog of a restaurant opening in my neighborhood


I have a feeling that the sweetest little restaurant ever is opening up in my neighborhood. And the really fun thing is, they're blogging about it. Their new ice cream maker from Italy just arrived, and they're asking for our favorite ice cream flavors. Hello. Ali and Evan's research into local coffee roasting is beautiful, and they even are posting about their favorite local restaurant, Burrito King, which, by the way, is every bit as good as they say it is.

Their new soon-to-be-restaurant, Little Red Bike Cafe, is within walking distance, and I hope they do well. Our neighborhood has few and far between good places to eat, though that is changing, and I know the neighborhood is now packed with people seeking good food and products. I love that reading their blog is like peaking into the restaurant before it's opened. Good luck Ali and Evan!

Can't wait to come for a visit and go there! Do you suppose they'll allow Gingers and Winks? Maybe if we carry them in their Paris Hilton bags??

That's very cool. Plus, I love the "sites that make you hungry". Food sites are always good.

last year my partner and i made some killer chocolate and cayenne ice cream. the heat from the cayenne keeps you digging in for more cooling ice cream, a vicious but delicious cycle!

(also got to your blog via lelo in nopo in case you're keeping score)

Oh my, their blog makes me want to go there! I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously through you! (Unless they can find a way to ship it to CT! LOL)
