I had dinner at The Gabardine a few weeks ago and fell in love with the food and the room. It's a small space but the design matches the comfort food and is warm and quaint. The brick has been painted white and they have small bistro tables which makes it easy for sharing their fabulous desserts. The exposed Edison bulb fixtures are on trend and the artwork scattered around the room adds whimsy to the space.
