- It was October of 1985 when I walked with a friend of mine from to the old library at Eastern Michigan University. There, I was introduced to this beautiful freshman girl from Curacao and I fell in love with her. I did everything to impress her. She just "wanted to be friends" ... Obviously she didn't share my mom's belief that I was the best-looking boy at Eastern Michigan University! I tried everything On Valentines Day of 1986 had the most brilliant idea. I would make a heart shaped pizza put pesto, shrimp and write "I Love You" with goat cheese! So there I was, knocking at her apartment door, armed with my two strongest weapons, my cooking and my humor. In 1990 Nathalie and I graduated from Eastern and in 1997 we bought the Tower Inn, where where we had our first date. We work side by side ever since and we live in Ypsilanti with our two wonderful kids. Our food is made with tons love and we are trying to win your hearts as well, every day. Thank You and Enjoy!
