The construction at Coquette continues, as the black and white tile floor is being laid and the tin-type ceiling in the bar area is nearly installed. The hardwood floors in the private room are done, but they were covered with paper, so no photos.
When I stopped by yesterday to snap a couple of pictures, the construction superintendent asked if I was with the insurance company. Apparently, one of the gaskets on a sprinkler wasn’t installed properly, causing a bit of water to spray about. I don’t think it’s anything serious.
The Coquette folks had a private event last evening at a nearby home featuring a lot of dishes from the new menu (I promise I’ll show you the menu next week!). Unfortunately, I can’t report on it, as it was my daughter’s birthday, and that still takes precedence over my food blogging. I’ll get a report from the chefs and give you the low-down next week.
