A tree grows in Herringbone...

...actually, a forest. Did Brian borrow a page from the Blue Bayou restaurant in Orleans Square at Disneyland, or...?

    1. This might be the best thread ever on Chow-SD.

      1. Fascinating. Beautiful. But what do trees as decor have to do with a seafood restaurant/market?

          I think that's what I like most about the trees being there. It has nothing to do with the sea. Give me an element of surprise anytime, instead of a contrived seafood theme restaurant with fishermen, aquariums and boats. Then again, I hope I didn't speak too soon.

        2. Was the tree planted, or did it exist? It appears to be a very old olive tree, and I'm completely down with the symbolic nature of it. It actually might make me want to go there.

          It has the FN seal of approval, and not those dirty wretched creatures that foul the water at the Children's pool, either.

            Let's not get too political.... Next time I see someone getting starred down by one of those pinnipeds, I'll introduce myself!

              The trees were recently brought in and planted -- here's a shot from the back door.

            2. A tree. Okay, what's your point?
