Dining pods

Fishing net-inspired seating at Bondi restaurant, San Diego


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).

  1. that’s wild. reminds me of a place I was at in Virginia Beach where the bench seats were like porch swings and you could rock back and forth. I’m going to SD in December…might have to try to check it out 🙂

    Liz…the pod idea is what meets the eye but never the seat. Check out the cafe/bar area at a hotel in Florence:
