I have been so crazed, and have been meaning to post more Tokyo items, which I will...eventually. Apologies for the light posting, holiday gift guides coming soon!! On Sunday I checked into the The Peninsula here in Chicago for another press trip, only this one is in-town, so it's all the fun and none of the hassle of traveling! Last night we went to Publican, Paul Kahan's (Blackbird, Avec) new restaurant in the West Loop. It was tas-ty! And I talked at length with one of the brewmasters of Three Floyds, a micro-micro brewery which is served at at Publican in addition to the 100+ beer list. Definitely check it out if you're in Chicago, the Sunday fixed family style menu which they pair with beers is amazing! 837 W. Fulton Market.
