Does anyone else get a little too excited about going out for dinner?
Maybe it's just because I don't go for three-course meals very often, or maybe it's because I'm a massive child that gets excited about the prospect of a bag of jellies with a movie on a Friday night.
Whatever the reason, I know that I am easily excitable, so I try to keep a lid on it when I go somewhere for the first time.
When I walked into FIRE Restaurant a couple of weeks back my resolve was already weakened within the first few minutes.
I was invited down to FIRE Restaurant to celebrate the launch of their new craft beer 'Fire 1864' - more on that later.
We were greeted at the door and were invited to take a seat in the lounge while our table was prepared. We arrived a little early (on purpose), so we happily took a seat and started looking through the cocktail menu.
I instantly fell in love with the music and the butter popcorn smell that went hand in hand with the gorgeous caramel, purple and blue tones in the furniture and decor.
The music was Norah Jones, and I think we can all agree she's a Jazz Queen.
