The "Pope Room" at Buca di Beppo

    Newer Older

    I wanted to capture the pure "kitchiness" of this famous room at Buca di Beppo when no one was sitting here. I think that's a bust of Pope John XXIII, the author of Vatican II, placed conspicuously on the lazy susan. Funny though, I've never seen any patrons in this room wearing black. How disrespectful!

      Great to see you posting some photos again, Doug. This is a such fun place. Peter and I had our rehearsal dinner at Buca di Beppo three years ago and had a great time. You've certainly captured the "kitchiness" well!

      kyle, even though i've never met you, you're my biggest encourager here on flickr, and i appreciate your kind comments. i love this place and the staff as well-they go out of their way to make me feel like i'm part of the "buca di beppo" family. needless to say, i'm a regular here, that's why i'm in the market for a girdle, or possibly liposuction. pasta will do it to you every time. btw, did you see my cleveland park metro stop photo? it's sorta dedicated to you, in a fun sorta way! in any case, thanks for the helpful suggestions you give me.

      We have one of those at the BdB in Seattle. I love it that the Pope is on the lazy susan. When no one is looking, you can sneak in there and play "Spin the Pope."
