Oh, I LOVE the green. This looks like a really inviting space - I hope someday I make it out to the left coast and get to try it :)


It looks like an inviting space Brett. I like it.

Noe Valley, SF

Awesome. Can't wait.


Gorgeous - the wood is spectacular. Bravo, carpenters!

It's gorgeous... wow.


This is stunningly beautiful, and I would bet as functional as beautiful. I wish I lived closer than 3000 miles away. If this is a portent of the food to come...


Wow -- it's really coming together, and beautifully. And just when might the hiring process commence?

can you say g-d f#@!*ing damn? goodness gracious me oh my... I leave for a month and the restaurant builds itself! I really hope I'm here to eat some food out of that shiny kitchen... and plant a kiss on the handsome chef!


Oh Brett it's gorgeous!


such fun and such a beautiful space. I'm thinking of buying the place next door and turning it into a bakery, to supply you with fresh-baked breads and pastries. ; )


Brett, it is so gorgeous! And what a lovely evening. I felt lucky to be there, in the warm candlelight and happy chatter. It was very special--thank you!


looks fantastic - can't wait to check it out.


I LOVE the name: contigo. With you. I love it.

Best of luck to you!


Ahhh, Brett, I still (more so, even) want to work for you...


As an Architect and construction PM, and as a huge fan of your blog, I've been following the progress with great interest. I can't wait to come by and see it in person and to eat what I am sure will be a wonderful meal...

Opening Day must be in sight - yes?




how much longer????!


Your blog is super. So are your photographies. They make me hungry. I have spent a nice moment when seeing them. Thanks a lot.

Love the wood works. I also commend the installation of plants. Nice paint job, too. I sometimes dine out more to appreciate the interiors and design and less for the food.
