OK, I know I said I was back to the Chicago-town reporting, but I have been meaning to throw in this shot I took of basket seating areas that hang inside Bondi, an Australian restaurant I stumbled upon in San Diego. Inspired by Aboriginal fishing nets, I was sort of intrigued by the semi-private pods at first, until scary pod scenes from movies like Cocoon began coming to mind. The rest of the restaurant is gorgeous, with dark woods and a blown-glass chandelier, but the net pods, especially the ones that hung from the ceiling were just a little too Killer Klowns from Outer Space for me (sorry, it’s Halloween!). What do you think are some of the best and worst Chicago seating areas/seats? (Me—Best: Violet Hour blue chairs; Worst: the uncomfortable saddle chairs at Cipollina).
