Also at this hour, one can often find Chef Samuelsson working with staff and the local celebrity always welcomes everyone with open arms. Our guests was a little start struck but nevertheless took the photo opportunity. Back in Stockholm, Marcus Samuelsson is a big name since the Swedish expat's restaurants are famous all over the world. Red Rooster is still one of our favorites for so many reason and it is great to be able to drop by casually on a nice summer day and be greeted like an old friend.
revealed a couple of months ago that Banana Republic will be opening an outlet store on 125th Street and things now seem to be progressing quite quickly. Plywood went up about a week ago and now the bright yellow Banana Republic logo has been posted right next to The Apollo Theatre. A Gap outlet already exists across the street and a standard Old Navy storefront is close by also. Gap Inc's takeover of Harlem now seems like it will be complete with its three core brands taking over 125th Street.
