Welcome, Spring!The deck in March. In 'March: An Ode', A.C. Swinburne wrote, "Ere frost-flower and snow-blossom faded and fell, and the splendour of winter had passed out of sight". We sincerely hope that Mr. Swinburne is correct about that.

Surveying the deck at Rue yesterday, the first impression was that it looked empty and barren. I couldn't shake the picture of late summer's riot of flowers. But its not fair to compare a blank slate to a finished product. There was never a September day when the sun felt better than it did yesterday. March 21st made up for any lack of blooms with warmth and light and hope. March 22nd promises to do the same.

The front door of Rue 6 will open at 5:00 today. I'm going in early so there's time to sit in the sun and recharge the batteries. If you can join me, sneak around back, down the alley and up the back stairs at 4:00. The best staff in the world will be working hard, setting up inside, but they won't hurt us if we stay out of their way. An adult beverage and a fine cigar could be involved (I'll make sure you have access to both). You might even want to try the new Rue-Barb Collins. Its custom made for sunny days!

Then hang around for Low Country Shrimp & Grits tonight! Its one of our favorite meals of all time and we're thrilled to get to share it with you! Our other Lenten special is the "Tip the Scales" Fish Sandwich. Its big and crispy and flakey and delicious! This promises to be the best Friday of 2019, so far, at Rue!!!
