Behind the Scenes at Esquina

We are beyond color chips and written menu ideas – color has been rolled on the walls and test recipes are being prepared. No actual customers yet, so I’ll consider these pictures a second trimester peek.

The bar is taking shape!

Not afraid of a bit of color…

A dulce de leche tasting – the batch made from coconut milk was delcious, but a bit thin. The batch made from sweetened condensed milk was thick and luscious and the favorite. We tested one evening at The Burger Stand at Demspey’s (hence the french fries in the background).

Still so much to do before we open, which will be soon

    Hi Molly, I’m really looking forward to your new restaurant! And may I say, as your former teacher, that your writing skills have not diminished one bit–you really are a great blogwriter–and that when you write at the intersection of food and life, I see a glimmer of the social worker you never were, but could have been, in the way you express things. I cannot explain this, just take my word for it. I hope you love working at Esquina.

    All the best,
