Impressions ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I was a bit worried about how beautiful and elegant Impressions is, wasn't sure if it could handle
The Fatterside. We are such a rowdy and noisy bunch and, trust me, Chef Cyrille knows  :P

I was so relieved when I saw the containers of crayons.
Suddenly the place seemed fun and spontaneous.

These breads were sooooo sooooo good. Everyone ate more than he should.




Frances, our birthday celebrant, arranged for 2 different menus -
Set Menu 1 for the pescetarians and Set Menu 2 for the carnivores. Being the smart people
that we are, Frances and I ordered different sets, shared everything so we could have them all :P
