Turn of the century modern

This is the front of Crisostomo, the restaurant of chef Florabel Co where we celebrated my husband's birthday last year with a full-course Filipino meal. Reflected in its windows are the umbrella tables of a neighboring coffee shop, the palm trees in the plaza of Eastwood Mall where the restaurant is located, and one of the many high-rise condominium towers which completely surround it.

Great place and excellent reflections. An apt name, Crisostomo comes from the Greek for Golden Mouth....

Happyyyyyyyy! Oh, I'm so glad you found me here. Of course I remember you. I only have my baking site left in the multiply world. I'm pretty much in here and in facebook. It got pretty boring in there and there wasn't much going on anymore.

This was my hubby's idea to have my own site to keep myself busy, like taking care of 2 kids is not busy enough. LOL!

I'm your follower now :-) This is really not my main blog. I made this coz I'm learning to take pictures with my new cam. My main blog is the Clairebakescakes.

I'm so happy you said hi :-) Take care and nice too see you again as well.

Woody said...

Cool! There's a guy in the reflection that looks like he could be sitting inside enjoying his meal. The link to the traditional Filipino meal was great!

Hello dear Hilda,

By the way please forgive my crazy mommy Léia, because she did a mess with my last post.Yesterday she was trying to do a beautiful post about Spring in my blog when a friend of her arrived and you know how are all girls together chatting...anyway, after all she forget to check about my post, about the size of the collages and so on.So sorry about it.
And you are such a gentle friend,thanks so much for your words!
purrs and always love
Luna

Very nice shot Hilda. I remember the food that you posted last year. It really does look like a nice place. I've never seen a restaurant around here that serves Filipino food. :(

Rebecca said...

Wow, looks like a nice place! Warm colors in the reflection make it feel cozy.

Great umbrella reflections...

Wow what a great window reflection and the restaurant's exterior is so lovely it compliments each other.

You've captured multiple interesting reflections in the window of this restaurant. I hope the meal was as nice as this photo.
