Welcome to Burlingame
We are new to two activities – social media and restaurant management – but we’re diving into both with energy and enthusiasm (and a modicum of trepidation)! Â Our plan is to regularly blog about what’s going on with the development of our restaurant and share some insights into what we intend Burlingame to be and what we’re learning along the way. Come along for the ride!
In April, with the help of our realtor, Phil Griffin, we closed on 20 South 5th Street – a cute little 1940’s vintage home that had been a law office for the past few decades. She was a little run down but she had character – just the kind of character we wanted as the foundation of Burlingame. The oak and pine floors that greeted us as we entered that first time caught our eyes. The layout offered possibilities of a few cozy rooms, a central wine/beer bar, a glassed-in porch and a shady, private deck out back. The detached carriage house could become an excellent kitchen… We could all see the possibilities!
