"Sure thing."

It's not an especially high class neighborhood, being between the industrial and residential areas of Cowtown, and the City Center. But on the outside, the building almost resembles an old manor house, with dark wood covering a porch along the entry, and white walls on the second floor.

Entering, Silver finds something like a foyer, though bigger, and with the hostess stand near the front. At the stand is a unicorn stallion with dark brown fur, and behind him are wooden stairs going up to a second level that wraps around on the left with wooden railing.

Inside he sees an older mare busy at a desk, but near the entrance is a young, apricot-colored mare–at least, probably old enough to a mare, despite being quite short–with a white stripe down her nose between bluish-purple eyes. Her auburn mane falls over one side with a simple cut. She appears to be wearing a long, midnight blue dress that accentuates its plain style with small, four-pointed stars of lighter hue.
She smiles, albeit a bit nervously, at the newcomer. "Hello sir, can I get something for you today?"

Here she faces a rather large, grizzled old unicorn stallion of light grey coat and darker grey mane, and a dark stripe going down from the back of his neck all the way along his back to his tail. His mane is similarly short and no-nonsense, but looks like it needs some slight attention. His burly, muscular appearance is further accentuated by a floofy winter coat that makes him look a bit bigger than he actually is. He is bare, save for a pair of saddlebags and a rather large sword strapped to his side, letting her see the cutie mark of a sword mid-swing emblazoned upon his flank. He has to look down slightly to meet her eyes, where he smiles and speaks in a deep voice with a Severyanan accent.

The mare with a country accent blinks, and reddens a bit at his latter remark. "I"ll do my best. Red you said, hmmm…" Standing on her hind legs and leaning against the wall with one forehoof, she uses the other to pick up a carmine dress. Although it's difficult for a pony, particularly one without any sartorial training, to know how it would look on a griffon, some elements are obvious. It is a v-neck in front but mirrored with an embroidered lattice of fabric holding together the shoulders. These have long sleeves ending in flared cuffs. As one might expect for a griffon there are holes for wings and a tail. To the best of one's estimate the body is designed to be a snug fit but the skirt would hang loosely; its thin fabric is quite a bit shorter than Amber's skirt.

Amber tries to see what type of fur the coat is made of, whether it is rabbit (the cheapest), fox, or a different creature. Mink might be beyond even this establishment.

The young mare recoils at his last request, looking grossed out. Come on, don't judge the customer, just...get him what he wants. Even so, it takes a couple of seconds for her to regain her composure.

"Of-of course, underwear is this way..." She leads him to the aisle with female underwear, which is next to the significantly smaller section of male underwear. Articles are grouped by type, ranging from more "functional" types like thermal underwear through panties, brassieres, garters and socks. More "respectable," covering panties in different colors hang next to more lacy lingerie, with the latter having only a couple of colors besides black and white. Different underwear exists for ponies and griffons, with the distinction between the two-besides the shape itself-being a picture of a pony or griffon model, respectively, fully clothed but in a seductive pose. A point of possible interest is how some of these are conjoined with a brassiere of different sizes. Brassieres are also sold as a separate item in a wide variety of styles. Interestingly, this product exists for both ponies and griffons, with the latter having four cups though of a smaller maximum size. Besides these there are socks and stockings-both of the conservative and the raunchy variety-with garters to hold these up.

Amber seems ill at ease to be in this section with Silver and is looking to the side, away from the stock.

He gives her an apologetic look.

"I am sorry about how awkward request is. I just want to treat her to something she may like."

He finds some black lacy lingerie for his griffon in a fitting size, including a full set panties, brassierers, socks, and garters, in silk if they have them, normal cloth if they don't. He doesn't waste his time here so as to not embarrass the poor mare any further, and leaves the section with her as soon as he's made his selection. There, in the front of the store next to the counter, he asks her a question.

"So...this may seem weird, but since I arrived to city I seem to have had knack for meeting individuals who are also recent arrivals to Baltimare, each with their own unique abilities that work extraordinarily well on quests, missions, or in battle. This may be completely random, but...you would not happen to be like that too, would you?"

That's certainly cheaper than I expected, especially considering the coat. The suit is middle-of-the-line and not bespoke so it would not be very expensive, though. Amber makes sure to double-check the total from this purchase before telling it to him.

Amber doesn't know much about fur coats, considering them morbid and something only griffons would like. The current popular style is brown or dark grey with white being a little uncommon. Silver picked one before Amber could get a close look at it.

Also let's not forget that all the lingerie is also made of silk, and we know how that tends to get marked up.

The trouble with bats is that, however far you banish them, they always seem to end up on pony land. The patio will have to do for this set. They are lead to the table wordlessly, although it's unsure whether the squeaking noise Amber hears is from an opening and closing door, or a bat.

The three ponies would again prefer to sit inside. There's some concern about the humidity and their clothing.

Seems satisfactory, though indoor seating is scarce.

Another couple shows up. Looks at least in their thirties, and both wear semi-formal attire.

These can be given Larkhaven's high table.

Finally, a spot for the three. "Thank you for your patience."

They hastily take their seats, giving a nod to Amber.

The couple is lead to the table not long after arriving

One of Melon Mangrove's tables has opened up,
As has one of Cream Pop's

A trio of young adults enters, as well as a larger group

Amber breathes in and out. She asks the trio politely whether they would rather sit at a table or be at the bar. If there's room at Melon's table she'll put the larger group there.

The trio isn't per se opposed to seating at the bar... But the bar is no less crowded than the remainder of the restaurant

I don't think there's room at one of De Sew's tables for a large group, so another of Melon's will have to be freed….
She gives De Sew's table to the small family.
