I met Everest's Chef Jean Joho at Brasserie JO when we had our sartorial meet-up there...
Tom Hardy stole the show and his character (not Joseph Gordon-Levitt's) should have been Cobb's sidekick. Leo was Leo. Ellen Page acted like she wandered in from a Cisco commercial. Nolan's vision, mise en scène and the plot structure (e.g. dreams-within-dreams) were brilliant, however.
Wonder if Bon wore selvege while shirtless?

Schwa is on my list (it's around the corner from our place in Wicker Park), then Alinea. I still need to go to Everest and Les Nomades too.

Piven was great as the "George" character in the show-within-a-show episode of Seinfeld.
Kansas city bone-in strip steak at Smith & Wollensky's, with seven other guys at table facing the river - celebrating a buddy's 40th birthday. The dry aged beef was great (a nice mineral-y-ness), and we got a tour of the aging room. One of our more prominent female chefs stopped by for an appetizer (a friend of some of the guys). Interesting conversation about the local restaurant business.

Gentlemen, we have lowered the price of our event to $76/person (complimentary beer and wine will be available for two hours rather than three hours, in line with last year's event). Please contact "ld111134"/Lou, "Francisco d'Anconia"/Josh and "Burton"/Gerard if you have any questions, and coordinate with "Burton" in regards to payment.
