Each area we are creating will have it's own feel. This is going to be one of our seating areas complete with vintage orange couches and Keane paintings. I'll be adding other photos as we work on the various areas of "The Slide Inn"
Wow! we did all the floors today. They look amazing! We are so looking forward to decorating the space. Lenor has such a great eye for details and color. We have an amazing collection of very themed 70's style decorations that will be going up soon. Thanks to the help of Armando who has been instrumental in the space coming together. I am going to start working more on the food pretty soon.
Can you imagine a place called "The Slide Inn" that would not even have a fireplace, Well we do. You might not be able to warm your toes next to it, but it does glow. We have been hunting for treasures, and we had to buy this one.
We are officially closed as of today. I will post some pics of a "Naked il Piatto" as we remove the heart and soul of what made il Piatto such a special place later today. As we mourn the loss of il Piatto we look forward to a new beginning and what will soon be "The Slide Inn"
Tonight is our last night as il Piatto, we will be serving 5:30-9:30pm tonight.
Join our Blog and you can view pictures of "The Slide Inn" as it happens.
Thank you to all our loyal customers over the years.
We hope you will join us in our newest endeavor.
It's the big countdown with il Piatto closing in 5 days. That's right we close after dinner service on Sunday, March 18'th. After that I'll be slaving with the remodeling process which could take up to 2 whole months to redo what has been around for seventeen years.
The transformation will all be view-able right here on the blog site so keep checking back!
Managed to pick up an orange couch today, should fit in nicely. Also got a few of those vintage star shaped wall clocks. Hopefully we will be done in a month or so. Working on my menu's this evening, next comes our Brunch menu. Going to have Vegan waffles with house made lavender syrup, does that sound good or what?
Today is the first day we will begin to announce our intentions. It is a sad day as we know we can no longer go back, at the same time I am very exited about our ideas and prospects of the future. We have some amazing ideas about the food, decor and all the incredible beers we will have. It has been a very creative past month deciding on menu items and interior design and colors.
I hope you'll add us to the list of blogs that you will follow as I will be posting shortly daily blogs as the work begins. Our last day as we know il Piatto will be on Sunday, March 18'th, so please stop on in prior and you can see the amazing transformation about to occur.
