The Zodiac Room at Neiman Marcus

What else is there to say but amoeba-shaped silver napkin rings, ten-dollar bottles of sparkling water, tiny cups of broth, warm popovers with strawberry butter, lobster bisque and fruit topped with poppy seed dressing...

Yes, it was a little extravagant. But like the Mastercard commercials say about being priceless...this lunch was!

Why?

Because it was a little respite, amidst the emotions of a funeral, the anti-climax of a wedding, the tribulations of deadlines and the ills of dysfunction, when my mother, my daughter, my son and I shared a moment of genteel grace.

I predict that for years to come we will reminisce of this day.
