Can someone explain this place to me? Two locations, not really open? One of the few Madison mysteries left.

Where are they?
Only one I know of was an LP soundtrack from a documentary about bomb shelters or something.
So what they serve?
Really really small portions?

Atomic? Are you talking about on Park, cause that's not a cafe....

If that is not what you are talking about, where are the locations?

You have to love Atomic Interiors, they're the only Herman Miller for the home dealer in Madison.

Herman Miller, the folks that will build you a Freud lounger for your living room.

That looks exactly like one of them sex chairs.
But I guess a lounger is sometimes just a lounger.

Those are the post-modern flip n fuck chairs, right?

Yes I was referring to the Park Street venues. Never around when they are open, mistakenly thought they might be actual places to get food, maybe even some fire balls.

Atomic has the craziest hours for any biz I've ever seen. I think they are open for 3 hours Thurs.- Sat.

Hermann Miller chairs are amazing if you're stuck sitting for a living. Start at a cool $1k though you can find them on Ebay for $650. Got mine from a wholesaler who handled the Enron liquidation. Wasn't even used, and a lifetime warranty.
