R2L has a large dining room with beautiful views of Philadelphia...
Interesting and artistic decor like this funky light fixture...
And this awesome work of art made from utensils...
Good food, cool atmosphere and of course, great people!
My friend Emily (check out her blog Cleanliness is Next to Godliness)...
And tons of other food writers/photographers/bloggers who love eating and documenting fabulous food!
We weren't just eating, drinking and socializing. We also had an informative photography lesson from Eric Mencher. After the lesson we practiced on some edible props, generously provided by R2L...
Oh yes, and we did attack the dessert cart. I mean, they gave us permission, so how could I resist?
I'm so glad I broke my normal weekend routine (cooking, baking, blogging, housework) to go out and meet other local food enthusiasts! Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this a successful event... I'm still dreaming about that Lobster Mac and Cheese...
If you're ever in Philly, I encourage you to visit R2L. You'll get a great view, great drinks, and a memorable and delicious meal!
What did you do this weekend?
