a break. from. a book. in progress.

The photos pretty much speak for how I spent my Sunday afternoon.
I claimed a few hours to myself in this cozy place called rise n*1. It's a souffle restaurant and this twinkling centerpiece which seems to rise high like a souffle, is my favorite fixture.
You can choose how to spend an afternoon here; seek refuge in a corner, enjoy the sunny patio, even sit on the couch or in an easy chair. There's a couple of bar options too; the classic which has a window open to the patio or the even smaller counter positioned in front of the ovens where you can watch the many souffles in all their stages to greatness.
I did several of those things today. I contemplated purchases from the sitting-shopping area, watched the ramekins in the oven, talked wine and souffles with Jennifer at the bar, enjoying a refreshing, dry rose I'm thrilled she recommended.
Esther brought me bread while Pete and I talked about cameras.
Rob the bartender arrived and we discussed life in Dallas.
Esther recommended the salmon souffle. Thank you Esther!
