There is something about stumbling upon a new culinary treat that makes my taste buds tingle with delight. Dining isn't just about food, it's also about the atmosphere and the people within it. That's where Babette's comes in.

During my time in London, I had the unique opportunity to see first hand this beautiful dynamic. Laughter amongst the staff, patrons eagerly awaiting their meals, lovers enveloped in each others company and so forth. That's something you cannot force, it just is.

Babette, the owner is a breathtaking human being, seeing good in people, providing little nuggets of pure wisdom, and encompassing the je ne sais quoi of every french woman. Plus she makes the most amazing hot sauces that I cannot find in the states.

If you ever catch yourself in London, you should check out this magical spot. Fin.
