If I keep up the analogy of opening a restaurant being like having a baby, then I think we’ve gone into labor. And just like when your water breaks and you still have no idea when the actual brith will occur – we feel hopeful but are still are unsure as to when we will open the doors at Esquina (at 801 Massachusetts).
We are getting very close.
The liquor license has been issued. The health department has inspected and approved the kitchen. The equpiment is up and running. Soon the food will be delivered and the cooking will begin. But we need to have our sprinkler system operational (among other things) before the fire marshall will sign off in order open.
I admire those women who go through childbirth naturally (as in, no drugs) but as a tribute to those who order the epidural shortly after they find out they are pregnant, I think that I will go to Demsey’s and have a beer.
I’ll let you know when we have a delivery date.
