A visit to The Harrison and a recipe from Executive Chef and Next Iron Chef contestant, Amanda Freitag, for a Fall Squash Salad. And yes we got to meet her.
We’ve always had a soft spot for The Harrison, (355 Greenwich St. at Harrison (212) 274-9310 http://www.theharrison.com/ ). The restaurant was set to open the week of 9/11 2001. The World Trade Center stood at the end of Greenwich St. just 6 blocks south. Needless to say, the area was cordoned off and pretty much inaccessible for weeks and weeks afterwards. Fire trucks lined Greenwich St. You needed ID to go anywhere. But The Harrison’s two partners, Jimmy Bradley and Danny Abrams, hung in there and much to the amazement of pretty much everyone opened for business on October 26th, just 6 weeks after the cataclysm.
