  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

i love the look and the sound of this place - i am really into these regional gems. and pie! that's something i'd like to research. there's a lot of awesomeness here.

I am so proud of this post! I love it! I'm even more proud that you went to a place I totally love and you too liked it! I have never tried the pie, as one of the follow always wins out: the lemon cake, the marble cake or the poppy seed cake.

Oh...and the carrot cake. Definitely to die for! Just like the kind my grandmother made. Although I do take off some of the overly generous icing.

Claire, don't forget to let me know about your upcoming field research here. I'm planning for Friday.

Thanks all for the comments!

Brian - you're always an inspiration for good eating and food photography.

Sharon - thanks again for scouting out wonderful places to eat.

Kathleen - I can't wait to eat some pie with you!
