lot no. 3 in bellevue

for brunch, amy and i usually stick to the same place. we're creatures of habit, so if there is one restaurant we particularly enjoy, we end up there often enough that the servers know us by name. we become one of those customers who have their "usuals".' recently, we decided to venture outside of the box and so we ended up outside of seattle proper in bellevue at lot no. 3.

it was a lovely place, with an industrial feel reminiscent of those old downtown los angeles lofts i grew up seeing. high ceilings, red brick walls, black steel, bare pipes.

i'm a camel so i love it when restaurants leave a pitcher of water out, but they somehow managed to up it a step by putting it in a corked glass bottle. it's definitely an idea i'll be using for future dinner parties. they also had those chalk board menus up. it looked so good that it confirmed the desire i had to paint one wall of my craft room with chalk board paint.

eventually, we ordered our food. amy got the veggie omelette with spinach, mushrooms, tomato, and gruyere. i got waffles.

it was so good that we ended up switching plates halfway through and then polishing everything off.

needless to say, we need to start eating at different places more often. there is nothing better than a wonderful brunch in a new environment.
