Comfort and conversations at Prologue Neighborhood Kitchen, Tomas Morato

There are friendships that hold firm despite the distance or the dearth in time spent together in the past year. There are people with whom you will always feel at ease and every meeting is a welcome rediscovery of what made you friends to begin with.

Holding get-togethers with these kinds of friends in a charming and comfortable venue provides a special backdrop for fun ribbing, meaningful conversations and new happy memories.

That is what my yearly Christmas reunion with my ex-officemates held at Prologue Neighborhood Kitchen was: a coming together of individuals who may be separated by distance but are still close in heart and mind.

Prologue is a relatively new dining destination in the Tomas Morato area. It is a place designed to give comfort and good cheer with its bright and airy interiors adorned with homey touches such as a warmly colored brick walls, displays of freshly baked bread, bric-a-bracs artfully displayed on a shelf and old wood furniture and plush couches.
