It wasn't just the food and the wine, although that was very good. It wasn't the calm, low-ceilinged, softly lit, simple room, although that settles your mind and slows the heart-rate. It was that they care. And you know they do, without them having to show it in that forced manner of chain-restaurants. The smile that welcomes you tells you that this belongs to a family, and for as long as you are there, they will share something of themselves. For some reason, at the end of the meal, you tell a story which involves the word 'ginger' many times. And the next moment, your guardian angel for the evening brings a bottle of a Portuguese liqueur called Ginja (which is made from cherries) because she heard you and she wants you to share that too. If you go there it won't be exactly the same, because that would be the opposite of what they are and what they do.
