I am really excited to be going to the NRA Show in Chicago this weekend. This is the second year in a row I will be attending, and I am sure it will be just as fun as last year.
The delicious food from the multitude of great restaurants the town has to offer has my stomach already growling. However, I have a specific spot which I am trying to get reservations at, the new restaurant by Michelin-starred Chef Shin Thompson, Kabocha | Japanese Brasserie.
I understand he recently closed his restaurant, Bonsoiree, to open this new concept. I am very interested in his work, because, well, it looks so yummy, but also because he has purchased several Henkelman Vacuum Packers.
At the first restaurant, Bonsoiree, he purchased a Jumbo Plus, our smallest unit with a really strong pump.
For the new place, Kabocha, he decided he needed a larger vacuum packer, and decided on the Jumbo 42, he fitted the unit with two seal bars, front and back.
I feel the repeat business he has given us is a flattering testament to the quality of the machines we provide. I really hope I will be able to take our friends from Henkelman to dine at his attractive restaurant.
I will report back about the trip and our time at NRA 2013.
One town that won’t let you down
It’s my kind of town…
