If you are very lucky you will find yourself catching up with wonderful old friends enjoying un petit dejeuner at the lyrical l'Escale on the water in Greenwich on a beautiful early summer's day. The food is Provencale..I had delicious eggs with trufffles..but for me the real feast was visual.
Impeccably designed and perfectly executed, the restaurant features old reclaimed floor tiles and a limestone fireplace salvaged in France and brought over here. The wire chandeliers are artlessly elegant (more on those in another post coming soon!) and the soft palette..beige, cream, white, dusty blue.. creates an inviting and very chic place to linger over un cafe.
That's exactly what we did. Come join us!
