Blue Facade



This is a side of a restaurant in Alviso. I have never eaten there, but the mural painted on its exterior is quite eye-catching.

Happy Friday,
AV

What kind of restaurant?

Fenix: The restaurant is the Marina Seafood Grotto. Here's a link to its fishy past.

The blue is perfect with the marbelized stonework.

What a beautiful mural. Whoever did it went to a lot of work. I'm glad you shared it.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Paulie: I agree, doesn't the stonework look real?

Sharon: Thanks and I agree about the artist did excellent work.

Nice artwork to decorate an otherwise plain wall.
I love the blue color. Great for a seafood restaurant.

Makes me want to go inside and lookm around....maybe more interesting things in there.

Photowannabe/Andrea: Alviso is like a ghost town and I guess they are trying to spruce up the place a little, but I really doubt it will do any good. The restaurant was closed when I was there otherwise, I might have gone inside for a peek.

That's quite unusual. It certainly makes a blank wall look very interesting.
