Zeppo is Now Open

I love that Track season is almost over.  Oops, did I say that out loud??  I guess I will know for sure if my kids are reading my blog or not.  Love you guys.  😀  I want to be a good mom, but I just hate standing the in the sideways rain or hail for 2 hours waiting for your child to run for 15 seconds.  Or better yet, both my kids throw things.  It never fails when they go to throw I turn away just for that brief second, just to turn back, realize that they are looking at me for approval, and I mutter,  “that was good”.  Who am I kidding?

Anyways, that’s not my real thing I love, this is it.

Our friends own a restaurant in downtown Lake Oswego, Oregon called Zeppo.  We love going to this place…a lot.  Two months ago they had a fire and they had to shut it down and gut it and redo the whole thing.

Today was a happy day because today was the grand reopening.   My husband and I made our way down to check out the newly decorated place.  It’s so amazing.

They have added new menu items, which I tried and loved.  Today I had the Prosciutto Panini with roasted red peppers.  They have also kept the same great decorations.  I love the cheese grater chandelier, the colander light fixtures, and the muffin tin bar.  I was so glad they put all those things back in.

If you are local and you are looking for a place that serves great food at an affordable price then you need to head on down to Zeppo. I promise you won’t be disappointed.  They might try and put in you a cozy booth that has curtains around it, but even though it looks cozy opt for one in the main area.  There are so many things that need to be seen.  The details of the decorations are incredible and should not be overlooked.

I was so bummed when I realized that I had forgotten my camera, I really wanted to have a full review for you.  The next best thing I can offer you is to head over to Facebook and become a fan or I guess now I have to say “Like” it. From there you can see pictures of the decor and pictures of the fire.

For us Zeppo is a Money 4 This kind of place.  Not just because our friends own it, but because we LOVE the food.  I am just so happy that it’s open again.

Do you have that local place that you just love going to?  Please do share, you never know when I might make to your neck of the woods and I am always on the look out for great local fare.

  1. The hubby and I have so many restaurants we love and I love finding new ones. It is too bad we don’t love to exercise together as much as we love to eat together.
