M and I had one of our first dates here. It was one of those magical dates where no one in the restaurant existed except for us. I'll always remember that lunch as one of the best dates that we ever had together, and always have a soft spot for Slate Street. Cheese ball city, I know...but it happened!
Another reason I have a soft spot for this place is because, a few years back I made the owners wedding invitations. They were a super hip and contemporary design that remind me a lot of the style of the restaurant.
We hadn't been back in awhile, so when he was here last week we decided to hit it up. It was no surprise that the experience was just as good as the times we had dined here before. We were seated right away, which was nice. We arrived around 12:30, and totally missed the usual lunch crowd and wait.
It was so sad, in the end we decided not to get a cupcake or any dessert for that matter. We were just too full, which is a good thing right? Oh well, it leaves us something to look forward to next time...I know for sure that there will a next time. I love the cool ultra hip atmosphere and the great food. We'll have to check out the dinner and brunch sometime, so that gives us something to look forward to. I heard brunch was amazing. I'm crazy about eating out for breakfast though, I don't like to do it unless I'm traveling. Weird right?
