Several of my co-workers and I went to brunch recently and as usual it was a very tasty meal. There was 10 of us and we were promptly seated in a corner in the main dining area with a perfect view of the outside patio. We all shared a couple of bottles of Wente Brut which if you haven't tried,... More
