At open Home Restaurants it is a joy to bring people together to share a meal and enjoy conversation with other guests they have just met.  Consistently we have found that guests who choose to dine with us are open to the experience and make fast friends with the other diners.  Last night was no exception, conversation was steady, intense and animated.  When guests left many exchanged contact information and I guess that many conversations will continue long past the duration of the dinner– We had a good night!  Thanks to everyone who joined us last night.

    Dear Sidra, I would love to attend one of your Restaurant evenings. Whenever I read your posts, I feel like I missed something — which of course, I did… But then I realize I didn’t have any advance warning, so it’s not like I could’ve planned it. Anyway, would really like to see you and John again — we had our wedding reception at Rupperts and used to be avid customers until we moved to Brasil. So, all of this to say, would you be so kind as to send me information on how we can attend one evening?
    Many thanks and congratulations on a wonderful and beautiful blog.
