I dropped off several cases of avocados yesterday. Can't wait to see how this all turns out! I did get to sample the Panna Cotta - it was to.die.for.
If you want to come -- call the restaurant at 805-532-0048 ASAP. It's next Thursday (Sept 29). $55 for the 4 course menu plus the martini. (For those of you who live far away... so sorry! Wish you could be here. Let the drooling begin.)
