On Friday night I ventured into the rainy streets of downtown San Diego, stilettos and all, for the Details Matter launch party!  The party happened to be at a new, local, totally unique and totally awesome venue downtown, Bailiwick.  Of course, I was not at all surprised, a cutting edge app must have a cutting edge launch party at a cutting edge venue, obvi!

Oh yeah, about that cutting edge app, you all should download it on your iPhone or Android!  Just search: Details Matter in the app store, you’ll love the design and the app itself gives great ideas for dates and fun things to do! You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter!

Now back to that amazing venue, they had me at we have champagne in a bathtub”but I was totally hooked after meeting their chef Konstantin.  He was fun, friendly and excited to talk food with me (which wins me over every time!)

He invited me back for brunch the next morning and I immediately accepted!

As you stroll into Bailiwick, you can’t help but notice all of the details in the decor.

From the giant chandelier hanging at the entrance to the peacock kicking it on the wall behind the bar!

Oh, and I love the sign, “Work Hard and Be Nice”, pretty much my life motto!

Also, what’s more unforgettable than a bathtub full of champagne?

Maybe a chandelier in a birdcage?

Oh, and now you’re going to tell me the food is amazing too? Yes, yes I am!

We started with their Breakfast Cheese Plate consisting of Toast, Mango, Dragon Fruit, Honey Yogurt, Swiss and Ricotta.

The combination of salty cheese, sweet mango and tart yogurt was delicious!

For the main course I ordered Chef Konstantin’s recommendation, the Chorizo Stuffed Poussin with Quinoa and Bourbon Maple Syrup. That pretty much just sounds like one delectable plate of food, right?

And it was!

I swear, I could eat the skin on that Poussin all day, add the added sweetness from the Bourbon Maple Syrup, amazing!

Both friends I came with ordered the Omelet with Pancetta Tots.

Salty pancetta, potatoes, eggs, veggies and toast, it’s the traditional breakfast plate, kicked up a notch!

Just when we thought we were finished our friend who launched the app Friday night strolled in and sat next to us.  He then proceeded to order Mini Waffles, which we obviously then had to have!

We’ll just call this the “dessert portion” of brunch!

Between the service, ambiance, food and drinks, this place is firing high on all cylinders and I can’t wait to go back and enjoy dinner here soon!
