After a two-year hiatus from the restaurant world, chef Jason Vincent is back with Giant. The 40-seat spot in Logan Square offers classic Midwestern dishes from the culinary genius named Food & Wine’s “Best New Chef” and a winner of the Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand award. General Manager and Partner Josh Perlman will oversee Giant’s beverage program, which includes a boutique wine and beer list and classic cocktails like this one—named after A Tribe Called Quest song.
If your work office is too noisy or your home office is in too much disarray to actually get anything done, there’s an app for that. It’s called Deskpass, from a Chicagobased company called Desktime, and it offers a subscription platform providing an online directory of 25 co-working spaces you can reserve with the tap of a button.
For $199 a month you can have a different workspace every day, or for $99 you can reserve a new space eight days out of the month.
The Logan may be one of Philadelphia’s newest hotels, but its Logan Square address certainly isn’t. This sleek and stylish hotel occupies the former Four Seasons, but with a seven-month-long top-to-bottom renovation, there’s nothing old school about it. “The Logan offers a mix of sophistication and modern luxury,” says Sandra Heydt, director of sales and marketing. “It’s slightly irreverent and avant-garde, mixing traditional with contemporary. It’s very visually interesting.”
