( UPDATE: Jan. 25, 2010 - More here. )
Well, it IS literally freezing out, and it's snowed twice in the last week... but things are coming together at Tei-An's rooftop patio. Construction is complete; furniture coming in; some details remain - but here is a look at the digs so far:
^ It is rather spacious in person. The bar will be at the far left.
^ View from the bar area. The glass double doors access the elevator from the first floor bar at Tei-An. There are some other amenities and nifty features still to come.
^ Looking up; ^ and, your intrepid blog-whore...
We also had our annual Festivus celebration at Tei-An tonight... Teach was insane with the food, here are just a few highlights:
^ Toro Bacon (yes, stupid perfect); ^ Ankimo in Muscadet.
^ The Daily Sashimi (impeccable quality, as usual. Teiichi picked it up at air cargo from Japan 3 hrs before it was in my belly); ^ and perhaps one of the most decadent things I've yet savored: a Full Yellowtail Collar - it's about 18" across. 'Succulent' does not begin to describe... Stay tuned!
