As you all may have heard, we're up and moving to a new and improved space! In looking forward to what tomorrow holds, we're gonna take a look back at where we came from. This weekend's menu is going to be comprised of dishes from our repertoire at Media Naranja, our restaurant in Costa Rica.
Literally translated, "Media Naranja" means "half an orange" but it also refers to your better half, the one that completes you. Having a restaurant is not unlike having a child that needs to be nurtured and molded so, as you can probably imagine, it was a huge loss to us to have to close in 2009. In our big move, we want to take a minute to pay tribute to our roots, where Cris and I started off. This will be the first time I've cooked these dishes since we closed our doors so it will definitely be a poignant meal for us. We are simply beside ourselves with excitement about the space and can not wait to have you all around our big table to christen our new surroundings!
