First… The American Dream…
Although I loved my job with The American Cancer Society, like many folks I dreamed of having my own business someday. And all the years of planning events, helping with weddings, graduations, birthdays, and other celebrations led me to the event planning and catering business. And so, “Over the Top Parties and Events” was born.
And then… The Soup…
After one event, as I was putting away a large quantity of fresh vegetables that we did not use, I looked at my daughter and said…“If we had a restaurant, tomorrow we’d have soup!” And so, the idea of a restaurant was born.
And then… The Food…
We knew we wanted good food…we do love to eat! And although we wanted things to be a little different, quality is of utmost importance. So we start with good wholesome ingredients, bought as locally as possible. Then we add a few family recipes and ideas, a twist of creativity whenever possible, and the philosophy of one of the world’s best master distillers (bourbon)…“We will make good food at a profit, if we can; at a loss if we must; but always good food.” And so, our menu was born.
And now… 6 Autumns…
The name, slightly different, but still classic and with just enough mystery to get folks talking about it and asking questions…I was reading a magazine, Garden & Gun…it was the first line in an article about landscape architect Charles Swick…“Six Autumns ago Charles Swick was designing a courtyard…” the accompanying photos of Mr. Swick with a tweed jacket and smoking a pipe, the beautiful tree in full fall bloom, and the Robert Frost-ish reference in the title “The path less taken” and I knew I had it!
But… The Bourbon?
Well that’s another story and it all began when I was just 14, but that’s another story, for another time…or at least another menu…
