Even the bathrooms were fun, although these photos were from the bathroom in the Curtis Hotel, which is attached to The Corner Office.
Let's close this post with a few more shoots of the restaurant.
Here's a recipe I will try:
via: Our Best Bites
from The Big Book of Backyard Cooking
8-10 large mint leaves
1/2 c. sugar (you can add more if necessary, especially if kids are involved)
3/4 c. fresh lime juice (about 7 small, juicy limes)
1 24-oz. bottle of sparkling water (like Perrier)
Finely chop the mint leaves. Place the chopped mint leaves in a bowl or non-reactive pitcher and press them with a pestle or the back of a spoon to release the oils. Add the sugar and press the mint leaves and sugar together with the back of a spoon. Add the lime juice and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy.
If you haven’t been mixing the mint and sugar in a pitcher, transfer to a glass or plastic pitcher. Right before serving, add the sparkling water and serve immediately over ice. Garnish with lime slices and mint leaves.
