Susie told us about the Corner Bistro in a comment and we wanted to check it out today, but missed it and thought all is lost.  As luck would have it, we had dinner tonight with two awesome folks that live here in Manhattan (Ken and Stephanie) and you guessed it- we went to the Corner Bistro, which lived up to all the hype. It's crowded, noisy, the service is spotty, the urinals in the bathroom areBurger at Corner BISTRO way too close together and the food is served on paper plates, but damn those burgers are oh-so-thick-n-tasty.

 The great company rounded out the night too.  Like AJ and Andrew, Ken and Stephanie were a wealth of sage travel advice.  I feel like we have learned so much from hanging out with people here and we are very thankful.  I'm hoping Sachi will follow up this post (likely our last in NY) with the notes she took tonight.

It's hard to be so happy you made it there and so jealous that I didn't get to go at the same time. Corner Bistro burger. So juicy! TTFN Travis

We had the best time meeting both of you! It was a wonderful mix of burgers, beers, like-mindedness, New York crowdedness, re-living the details of our own 13-month trip, crazy travel tips, and admiration for your spunk and preparedness for the journey you're about to embark on... with a splash of jealousy thrown in for good measure! We are so genuinely excited for your adventure. It will be the best decision you ever made, and you will never be the same.

Cheers to our new friends and kindred spirits!

All the best, Ken & Stephanie
