This is a great kitchen for cooking and hosting small dinner parties. What I like is that it is both high end and comfortable at the same time. You do not need to feel like you are going to break something if you walk into this kitchen space. Now, what I really like in this space is the island. It is prefect for prep, and at the same time you are not so far away from the main table that you cannot talk to your guests. Being able to chat while cooking makes for really fun dinner parties, and makes everyone feel like they are involved even though they are technically in distinct spaces.
