Lunch at Home

Mabel and I just came back from a very nice lunch at Home.

It's been under renovation for most of the summer and only re-opened recently. We pass by almost every day, and today we finally thought to give it a go.

They have a garden in the back that's adjacent to our building's backyard. The furniture's all new, some of the fencing is not even weathered grey yet. And they have outdoor heaters.

I got a salami sandwich which was good. It's how I would have wanted to make it myself. And they used a warmed soft ciabatta roll. Mabel got a fried oyster po' boy which was really awesome. It beats the Pearl Oyster Bar fried oyster roll, although I guess they're going for a different thing there. But still.

Anyway, the lunch was very simple, but you could tell the ingredients were impeccable. Nothing to dwell on, but it gave me a good feeling.

We will have to come back sometime soon for dinner. I imagine that this place is bound to get re-reviewed at some point. I haven't seen them with a full house yet, but that's not going to last for long.
