Welcome to 2015! I know I am a bit late, but it all happened so fast. I apologize for not blogging in the last few months, but I have been sidetracked by some major health issues and am slowly getting back to some activity.
For 2015 I definitely feel a subtle elegant vibe becoming stronger and stronger. Understated color, elegant lines with luxe fabrics and textures are creating a polished and modern look. With white, gray, and black as the neutrals there are many colors that you can play up as accents and one of them is a deep blue color.
I was recently visiting my son in San Francisco and we were looking for a great place just to settle ump at the bar and have some great food. Tyler Florence's Wayfare Tavern did just the trick. Wayfare Tavern is a rustic but elegant gathering place, rich with history and tradition. The first floor features an open kitchen and impressive fireplace built from bricks salvaged after the Earthquake and Great Fire of 1906. All three levels, including our two private dining rooms, are floored with wood sourced from a turn of the century barn.
The Tavern’s menu changes as local ingredients come in and out of season. Their offerings represent an innovative approach to familiar American Classics. With lighter selections such as seasonal salads and a large raw bar, as well as comfort food classics, the menus are well suited for various occasions and tastes.
