Behind the scene : my appreciation...Many thanks to my hungry table-top dining friends for their patience and tolerance in allowing me to interrupt their fine food, wine, and engrossing conversation. I apologize for cajoling them into playing musical food chairs during their Zinful meal and equally zenful dining experience.
Much gratitude likewise to Cheri and Wysteria for allowing me to disrupt their otherwise relaxing Zinful atmosphere during this busy Friday evening.
Kudos to you both for helping to make Historic Downtown Kennewick, WA a first-class gastronomic and socially nourishing southwestern Washington State destination. I can only hope to eventually return the flavor!
