Tease

I am using all of my willpower not to write a gushing post about Contigo, the new restaurant helmed by Brett. They don't open until Tuesday, but I had the privilege of attending one of their pre-opening dinners and holy fuckballs is it good. Now Brett is a friend of mine, and so you might be skeptical but I promise you, it is THAT good. I wouldn't be writing this at all if it wasn't.

I knew it would be, but I was wholly unprepared to be quite so blown away. Usually pre-opening dinners are a way to work out the kinks as it were, but I could see nary a kink in the 2+ hours I was there. That's something, considering our party of four tried 13 (yes, thirteen) different dishes.

I will save my real post for after they *really* open, which is this coming Tuesday. In the meantime, just go.

We were out of town for the soft launch, dammit. We tried to swing by yesterday after attending the Eve of Justice rally, but it would have been an hour wait! Lucky for us, it's a (really, really) short commute to the resto, so we're gonna hit them up on the early side tomorrow. I'm thrilled they're so successful out of the gate. Cuz, frankly, we poked our heads into three other restaurants in a one-block radius and there was nary a diner in any of them.

A high school friend recommended your blog because I was looking for suggestions for restaurants to put on a travel web page in Mexico that's expanding to the States.

Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the candid commentaries.
