Frame: Many Happy Returns

One of my favorite places- Central Bottle–  acknowledged its first birthday yesterday! Congratulations!

To celebrate, they held a party, complete with music from Prince, free cicchetti, a choice between two different wine flights, and of course, lots of good company. This was the first time that I walked into Central Bottle and felt certain I wouldn’t be able to find a place to set my wine tray, but there in the corner was the perfect space for my group. As my friends noted about the amount of people clamoring to be part of CB’s special day, it was – as always – “busy, but not uncomfortable.”

This was also my first foray into Central Bottle with a vegan in the group, who sadly had to pass up the salt cod and anchovy cicchetti being passed around to party guests. But our hero Nick quickly came to the rescue, arriving at our table with some non-meat alternatives that were just as delicious: braised fennel and cippolini onion crostini.

Central Bottle’s birthday party was the kind of celebration I like to have when I mark another year- lots of friends, good music, and great wine, but all in a relaxed yet festive atmosphere. It doesn’t really matter what you do, it matters who you’re with, and I hope Central Bottle is around for a long, long time.
