On Friday night, the Blue Window Bistro suffered a plumbing disaster resulting in flooding.
This could also have been a disaster for the Los Alamos Concert Association as we had reserved the restaurant for a post-concert dinner for 60 people, following the performance of Amsterdam’s Calefax Reed Quintet Sunday evening.
Instead, Melissa Paternoster and her wonderful staff flew into action and catered the dinner at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
Working in an unfamiliar kitchen, these great people presented us with splendid hors d’oeuvres and table-side service featuring salad, four entree choices from their regular menu and dessert.
How they managed to do this on such short notice seems nothing short of miraculous.
Los Alamos is very fortunate to have this young and enthusiastic restaurateur in our midst. Her community spirit is an inspiration.
