While cutting into some lovely ravioli the other night, I noticed the simple-but-nicely-done lighting fixtures at the Bristol. How were they made? Co-owner John Ross was kind enough to share:  “We built the boxes [that are attached to the ceiling] and dropped three cords from each,” he says. The key, says Ross, was in choosing just the right bulbs to set the mood. Ross and company got their amber-colored ones through Rejuvenation. The result is subtle and stylish. We also loved the artwork on the exposed-brick walls—acrylic paint on wood, featuring mainly trees—by local artist Evie Ogborn (evieogborn.com). The food and cocktails (try the Apple Pie drink—yum!) was pretty darn good, too.
