We started our BarTab at Bagatelle restaurant this month with Cecil and Nicole. After the bar cleared, we had a chance to chat them up a bit. June, 2004
So what’s your sign?
Are you cute as a button? Cuter than a button? Or not as cute as a button?
N: Cutter than.
C: I’m a belt.
Key West working history?
N: The whole thing?! (laughing) Lets see, Thai Cuisine, PT’s, Adobe Gilas, Irish Kevin’s, and then Bagatelle – but I was never fired.
C: What about PT’s
N: Except for PT’s.
C: She was let go. (laughs) I started at Bagatelle… and then I was fired. And then I worked a La Trattoria, then the Meteor and then I came back to Bagatelle. But I was only gone from here for like a week.
N: You had two jobs in one week?

N: And I look good behind it!
Favorite activity in Key West?
Customers: Drinking. You have to be honest.
C: Umm… drinking.
