I got the opportunity to photograph almost the whole menu for Bootlegger’s Restaurant this week, a great place up in Old Auburn that is going through a marketing revitalization. After everything was photographed I got to take home about six giant boxes of food so I was able to try many of the things I’d been smelling, and I highly recommend going there! It’s got an old world appeal with big wood burning fireplaces and a grand piano where they have singers three times a week. I couldn’t believe I’d never been there before.
Plus, the owner/chef was the private caterer for John Travolta and Kelly Preston when they were in Auburn filming “Phenomenon” in the 90’s. I remember that so clearly because my Dad lived in the foothills so Auburn was essentially where we went when “going into town”, and twelve-year-old Me was so not impressed with Auburn in any way shape or form until there was a movie being filmed there.
Here are a few of the photos I took, of many.
