What a festive night at one of our favorite local haunts. I know, for you Ann Arborites that don't like Main Street Ventures, this may be sacrilege. However, while many of the Main Street venues are VERY disappointing (Palio, for example), we really like Gratzi. It's a lovely setting in the former Orpheum Theater. The food is good and the service is usually very good as well. Last night was no exception. A fun time was had by all and the experience was a festive ending to F's visit (who left this morning). A pretty good review, if I do say so myself.

J: "One should always eat out the night before or the night after an at home feast. It just makes sense."
M: "Festive, comfortable, good Italian in Ann Arbor."
L: "The seafood was perfectly fresh and perfectly cooked."
F: I forgot to get F's comment before she left, but I will get it virtually and update the post :)
