Congrats to the winner! I've heard good things about the Blue Sky Cafe, but I've never been out there. Guess I'll have to add it to my list of restaurants to try in 2012.

Blue Sky did the catering for a film I produced last summer. Besides the delicous salads, the rest of the food they serve is fantastic, and the owners are wonderful!!
