The Grand Central Apple Store seems to be bringing in more business for at least one neighboring restaurant. The co-owner of Michael Jordan's The Steakhouse N.Y.C. tells Crain's that his sales are up 7%, and he doesn't think it's because his competition, Metrazur, closed last July. Instead, he pegs the increase to Apple's December launch. His son adds, "We know their customers are coming here," since they're identifiable by their little white bags. NB: Crain's called this story "Spreading the Apple Sauce," but we think it could also be said that a rising tide of Apple juice raises all boats.
