As a belated birthday dinner for the boy, I made reservations for Staple & Fancy here in Ballard. I’d heard amazing things about it, plus they do a fun “Chef’s Choice prix-fixe menu that sounded really cool. M & J joined us for the festivities and we met at our place for some wine and cheese before walking over to the restaurant. The food was amazing (and plentiful) and the cocktails were both delicious and strong.
The restaurant was too dark for my hipstamatic prints to come out, but at some point Susan got a hold of my camera and took some very entertaining pictures. (And a few accidental videos… oops!)

T & I contemplating the drink menu:
Um… not sure what this is, but it does sum up the mood nicely, don’t you think?
Then here is my artsy shot of the very cool brick wall that runs along one side of the restaurant:
We had an amazing time and I think the boy had a great birthday dinner. Even though his mom thinks he’s 43. 😉
