Happy New Year!
Sweet Butter opened in 2010…and now it’s 2011! I feel so “established!”
The past few weeks has whizzed by almost as fast as we sell out of Nan’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mia’s Bolognese & our Chicken Pot Pie Soup. I truly think we have the best staff of any restaurant, anywhere. We hit the jackpot here, believe me. We started with 12 employees, and now have 36…and they are all, each and every one of them, AMAZING. I know we have kinks to work out, like crowd control and doggie accidents, (yes, dogs are allowed almost everywhere at Sweet Butter) but I believe we’ll get there.
I think it is going to be a very exciting 2011 in Sherman Oaks. I can’t wait for Sweet Butter’s next door neighbor to move in. Tonight, my daughter Emily and I got a sneak peak at Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s new store, Inventori, a collection of the MOST amazing antiques and home decor one-of-a-kinds. Sweet Butter already has her eyes on the French hand-painted armoire and rustic Screen Door. I can see it now….the bride of 2011 goes to Mark’s Garden for her flowers, Sweet Butter for her Cake, Belle Gray for her Trousseau, and Inventori for her new house. Who needs Melrose?
