Many people complain about the noise at Bottega Louie.
I love the noise. I love the low roar of scores of simultaneous conversations. I love the clacking of stiletto heels on the cold white marble floors. I love the clanging of the pans. I love the clinking of the glasses. I love all the echoes magnified by the high ceiling, ringing throughout the luminous space.
Bottega Louie is vibrant. Bottega Louie is alive.
The last time I blogged about Bottega Louie was more than two years ago when I first tried it and ate there twice in one week. I loved it that much. Immediately.
I particularly enjoy Bottega Louie for brunch, when daylight infuses the restaurant with a captivating soft glow.
My friend got a Kobe beef hamburger with Bibb lettuce, Brandywine tomato, red onion, and fries ($15).
Look at that glistening fresh bun!
I devoured a breakfast flatbread with proscuitto, mozzarella, baked egg, and arugula ($8).
Brunch for just $8! Can you see why I love this place?
My friend's kid destroyed some scrambled eggs and toast.
My friend gave her kid this stunning cupcake, too. It was so delicate. It was so pretty.
I love ogling at all the goodies in the bakery of Bottega Louie.
Sugarfish across the street, I bought a perfect brilliant green pistachio cupcake. I savored it slowly and thoughtfully -- the way a work of art should be appreciated.
I'm of the Bottega Louie is too loud camp. I do think the space is gorgeous and love the variety of pastries. Packaging is great too. But it's still TOO LOUD for me.ReplyDelete
I want portobello mushrooms so bad it hurts right now.ReplyDelete

This was Louie's fault. How else was mini-Glam supposed to get to the cream center? Life is too short to eat cake. She only eats frosting.ReplyDelete
