I just got back from Chicago to attend NeoCon. I was greeted by my Chicago friends and an overwhelming amount of contract furniture at the overwhelming Merchandise Mart. Going back in time to Saturday, the first hot day of NYC (not the last to be sure) I met some lovely ladies and a gent for brunch at the Corner Shop.
The Corner Shop (on the corner of Broadway and Bleeker) is one of my absolute favorite places to eat in the city. Try the Portobella Burger, you'll cry it's so good. It was a great way to say good by to my city, and to Ankura who was returning to San Fransisco the same day.
