I just have to bring up another great meal that I had in Chicago during NeoCon. Steelcase Canada took out a bunch of us designers to Japonais for dinner on the Monday night. RGO, my local Steelcase dealer had invited my collegue and I to the networking/appreciation evening. This restaurant design is spectacular and from what I have heard is often a good celeb stomping ground.
We started the evening off on the terrace for drinks. This waterfront view looks onto the Chicago river which holds a deep routed history in the city.
