Toast and Wine bar - I found out a local restaurant that burned down in July is continuing their delicious food by "popping" up in places all over the warehouses and coffee shops etc.  What a great idea! and what a positive outlook on such a tough time for them!

Off to Nostrano we went for dinner - An amazing shaved celery salad with chicory and pisatchios...then a homeade fennel sausage pasta.
