Not all of us are as fortunate as Sara Grace, whose sweetie just happens to be Crystal Maderia, owner of Barre Street’s tastiest gem, Kismet. Under the guise of celebrating Sara’s 29th, Crystal plotted with Matthew Bilodeau, chef of the Black Door Bistro, to serve a wonderful family-style dinner. The food was great — oysters and garlic-soaked kale, roast beef, a parsnip and Brussels sprout salad — but the occasion was better: sending Sara off to a three-week tour of Amsterdam, her newly released single in hand. Everyone gathered round to show Sara their love and support and really, isn’t that what a special-occasion dinner is all about? The food seals the deal, but it’s not the deal itself — that was the palpable love for Sara and her incredible talent.
Rock it, Sara!
