By a twist of fate on the morning of September 11, instead of heading directly up to Windows on the World restaurant on the 107th floor, chef Michael Lomonaco made a detour and decided to get his reading glasses made at a store on the concourse level in the World Trade Center. Unfortunately 72 employees and 6 construction workers were already in the restaurant at the time and were not able to make it out before the building collapsed. Now Lomonaco is starting over with a new restaurant and a new menu. Check out his recipe for rib steak with adobo rub, chimichurri and sweet plantains, below.
