December 2013 marked the official establishment of Brimmer
& Heeltap. It has been a long and
arduous process that has been met with amazing people, a heavy dose of humility,
and a lot of caffeine. The best reward
is now having the doors open to the public and greeting curious diners near and
Feelings of nerves and excitement arose when moving into
such an iconic building. Stories have
been shared on both ends of the spectrum from engagements, first dates, Friday
night traditions, to never stepping in the space and living just around the
corner. All of us feel so privileged at
the opportunity and we would like to pay tribute to our predecessors for
instilling so many memories, so much history and so much inspiration between
the walls that is now our home.
We are almost done with the interior changes and the
response has been so favorable to how we honored the building and really made
it our own. I would like to sincerely thank
our creative team: Erik Andrew
, Marian Built
, Sean Sifagaloa
, and ShedArchitects
You can imagine there are so many people behind the scenes
that make something like this take shape.
I hope you will come in soon and meet them all as they are an amazing
bunch of talented and driven individuals.
While there are different areas of specialty, at the base of it all is
an overwhelming attitude of care for the work they do and those around
them. One of the best compliments we have
heard is that B&H doesn’t feel brand new but rather we’ve known/worked
together for ages. People are sharing
their enthusiasm for our food, team and interior. It is my sincere hope that you will come in
at least once to check us out and with regularity after that because you’ve
fallen in love with some aspect of our business.
In an effort to keep you better informed about various aspects of B&H
moving forward, I have teamed up with one of our amazing servers, Meredith, to assist
with updating blog posts.
