I don’t know how many people get to experience the kind of joy I am feeling right now.

Tonight was the kind of moment I had hoped bread&cup would be. We have partnered with some fellas who call themselves the Modern Monks, guys who love the simple pleasure of brewing beer and sharing it with their friends. We unleashed their St Meinrad tonight, a strong, dark, Belgian Quadruppel ale. Malty, fruity and full of spirit and strength, it was an easy beer with which to pair our food. I was surprised how many took me up on the Crispy Bone Marrow, but a beer with such a high ABV needed something as rich as this dish.

Nights like this, I think, are why people want to go into the restaurant business. It’s an incredible feeling to watch people enjoy the food and environment you created. What most don’t realize is the work that it takes to get to this point. It would be nice it one could enjoy the fruit without all the labor, but when you invest the time and effort that we have, the reaping of the benefits makes it all so worthwhile.

Thank you for making bread&cup a dream come true.

    I work a few blocks from our local brew-pub. When I stop for a bite and a beer after work, I find myself in auto-pilot mode when ordering food. The cooks seem to have the bar menu aiming right through the center of the beer menu. It is such a pleasure to enjoy the fruits of artists that are given the room to work at their most creative, in conjunction with other artists. The cigar room is quite another guilty pleasure.
    I wish there were not so many miles keeping me from tasting the the 'bread & cup'. It looks like a fine collection of experiences.
