A few days ago, an old friend from high school remarked that I “act a lot like a New Yorker and that [I] seemed so much happier when I lived there.” On the same day, I was told by multiple New Yorkers (natives and transplants) to move back. I still feel very New York but I think it’s because it’s the only place where I know how to be an adult. Maybe it’s more than that? I think about moving back quite often but there’s a lot of opportunity for growth in various industries here in Minneapolis so I’m conflicted. Anyways, check out this NYTimes piece about chefs moving to smaller cities/back home— I can’t wait for Gavin Kaysen to open his restaurant in Minneapolis!
