"We already feel at home here," says Sproule, "and are quite anxious for to the chance to cook and host every day from a space that will allow us to make all the little considerations for our guests. The details of the space's design were enthusiastically considered, but in the end it’s those guests on that particular evening that make each din din its own. The space has a stunning simplicity that is just waiting for guests to complete it. I can’t wait to lay down 50 plates and look out at a room full of diners."
