Earlier this month, Forbes published an article on the EMM Group, who operate Tenjune, Abe & Arthurs, and SL in the Meatpacking District. They have been extremely successful so far and are continuing to expand their empire. If you can get Forbes to endorse your success, I'd say you've made it; congrats to the EMM Group. Check out the article here.

A little MPD history for a change- a couple months ago, Core77 posted this short article on why there are so many cobble stones in New York.
And everyone knows, the Meatpacking District has no shortage of cobblestones. In the 1600-1800's, America was sending lots of resources and goods to Europe on ships that were leaving New York harbors, while Europe wasn't sending anything back. The boats had to be weighted down, so they sent heavy and easy to produce cobblestones on the trips back to America. And today, you can still see the streets of the MPD, Tribeca, and other neighborhoods lined with these old stones.
