The Playhouse 2.0

In Santa Ana we had a 16 course birthday dinner for our friend Sam.  This was the most interesting dining experience.  It was my first 16 course dinner.  There was no theme to the cuisine, but instead we trusted in our chefs to make some great American plates.   Watching the chefs cook your food while you drink with your friends was gooood, except I was designated driver so my glasses were pretty full all night.  Food was still just as amazing.

All 16 guests are seated at the bar which is separated from the main restaurant. Prep work for the food.
