In a small corner, in a world bigger than life, tucked away in an obscure place among legendary studios of the old Hollywood era, booms a cafe that on one late night in the rain, sparkled like a little diamond, offering refuge for the hungry.
That be me by the way. I was hungry, and I always like it when friends take me to places I've not known. It becomes a virginal experience for me, much like any first time to experience something new. My first thought was that Grub was a little secret that everyone kept from me. I was anticipating surprise, and indeed it was.
From the shell of an old home off Seward Street, Grub sits with open doors for customers to walk in and make themselves at home. Too bad it was raining, because it would have been nice to sit outside and enjoy the night air.
Inside was a bit crowded for me, and the table a bit small for five of us, but we did manage well, paying little mind to the trivial seating, and paid more mind to the dinner, each other and the who's who coming into the door. I could have well been eating in my own home and Mama's cooking.
I bit into my bacon, hamburger with cheddar cheese and my taste buds exploded. I need to know where they buy their bacon! It's a must know quest of mine. Sweet, crunchy, delicate, hickory taste to the palate. OMG! The side order of Mac and Cheese was a special treat with it's mild, mix of flavors, every bite of which slide down my throat like silk. Ummmm.
The girls have it, hands down. What they set out to do, to make their grub like home, they did. I don't think anyone would be disappointed. How could it happen? The setting is inviting and the food is comforting. Thank you Betty Fraser and Denise DeCarlo for putting your spin on a beautiful thing, like food.
More wine please!
