From the outside in, with its dimly lit candle light and wooden insides, Damson & Co made me think of that sort of place where secret poet societies go to murmur a few verses to each other. Darkness offers a certain kind of intimacy vital to gossiping and at times having a good time. Unless that darkness is at the end of an alleyway, in which case maybe you should just run.

The staff was incredibly fast, and in a way pushy with their niceness. Menus were practically flying all over the place, and before I knew it, my “Earl Grey” flavored sparkling wine was comfortably sitting in front of me. Stirred, not shaken, as I just don’t have the patience or the necessary dexterity to make sure I don’t spill it all over the floor. Sadly, it tasted more of sparkling wine and none of the Earl Grey so I was the tiniest bit disappointed. But since this was only a pit-stop for dinner at the Palomar, who cares? Nice atmosphere, nice staff, all in all good pit-stop.
