The Cantina - Part II


Last night I met friends for dinner at The Cantina in the Martin Biscuit Building at the Pepper Place. If it sounds familiar, we've been here before. Good friends, good food and drinks, and it's VERY photogenic!

The shadowy face reminds me of an art piece I saw in Paris ... a sculpture of Marcel Ayme in a wall at Place Marcel Ayme by sculptor Jean Marais in Montmartre district

Shhhhh...don't tell anyone, but this kind of fabulous, super bright color is just what the blog-world needed! (at least it's what I needed.) Thanks much, V!

Do they make a good Margarita?

Virginia said...

Lily,
It is!

Chuck,
Ahh oui, we saw it just last week on our trek down the hill.

Daryl,
I'm sure they do. I stuck to vin blanc.

Eeyore,
I don't know, It's pretty funny!

JB
Naahhh!!!!

Thèrése,
Oui!

Tash,
The color is HOT!

It may be a Mexican restaurant in B'ham, but your image has a very Paris feel to it.

«Louis» wonders why that might be....

;-)

Oh, yes, I love those colors. Like a blood orange or else a Buddhist's robe. I'd hit this place if I'm ever down your way.

I'm confused! Not my the lush deep orange very Mediterranean but by the word biscuit. I associate that with us Brits for your cookies. Of course to confuse me even more I am on the bourbon, no too early for the alcohol, the biscuits. Blogging it's all coming back to me now.

I can see why it's very photogenic! Great colours and composition too.

B'ham certainly does have some very cool places to dine and sip in!!! Love the contrast of the orange, the churchlike window, the ornate mirror and the profile of what looks to be Bacchus!!!

Very fun!!! And to think that when my sister moved to Louisville Ky about 35 years ago, the only Mexican restaurants in the south (according to her) were Taco Bells!!! We had to mail her care packages with Ortega chiles, enchilada sauce, salsa, tortillas, etc, etc!!!! I think B'ham has definitely gotten the hang of it all!!! But does this place serve Mojitos???

Wow! I'm impressed. You've got so much going in this photo. The colors are magnificent, along with that whatchamacallit on the wall and the silhouette and the light and the window...

And a good place to eat to boot!

Bob Crowe said...

Ummm, warm colors with tungsten lights and some high-grade tequila. A perfect cocktail.

Paula said...

You know you've been blogging too long when you pick your eateries by how many photo opportunities they can provide.

Virginia said...

Bob,
Absolutely!

Paula,
Guilty as charged.

Jacob,
A very good place to eat. May I recommend the fish taco and now the shrimp quesadilla!

I might just have to sidle up to that fellow on the right for a peck on the cheek.
