Introducing Chef Brian Loiacono of Bistrot Leo

Henry Miller once remarked with disparaging warmth: “Hell is probably quite similar to most Paris bistros … a bit overheated, somewhat too crowded, and a little too noisy for my tastes. The waiters will surely treat you rudely and the cashiers will always add a few extra francs to...

The Interrogator with Daniela Soto-Innes

Much is made of the energy level–and what exactly supplies the fuel for it–of Daniela Soto-Innes, the chef/partner of Enrique Olvera’s Cosme and Atla in New York City. Writers labor over descriptions of her daily activities (7 a.m wake-ups), her diet (apple-cider vinegar drinks), her workouts (yoga, most days)....

In the Studio with Sam Stewart

The domestic world is rife with convention. The formula, long established, can feel static and staid. Sit here, sleep there, use this for that. For North Carolina-born, New York City-based artist Sam Stewart, the work is about upending our expectations. His efforts transform space, giving new life to the...

In the Studio with De JONG & Co.

The difference between good and great is often found in subtlety–those details so small they’re nearly imperceptible but inevitably felt, subconsciously or otherwise. Such is the case for De JONG & Co., where the precise slenderness of a serving platter or the clever tapering of a pepper mill makes...

The Interrogator with Pamela Katz Tick

Pamela Katz Tick is one of those NYC-based multi-hyphenates that you can’t quite keep track of. If she’s not DJing, she’s modeling. If she’s not modeling, she’s styling. If she’s not doing any of the above, you can bet she’s traveling around the world–and looking absolutely gorgeous, to boot....

But not so with Daniela Jacobs. From her start as a young Parson’s student, the designer has stood out from her peers, possessing an uncommon...

In the Studio with Bower

Good luck placing a Bower piece within any particular era. The work of the Brooklyn-based design studio is immediately timeless, existing in the liminal space between past and future. Whether it be a mirror or a chair or a even a pen holder, the rules Bower play by are...

The Interrogator with Amber Vittoria

Amber Vittoria’s work can feel monstrous. Proportions are warped, inflamed, elongated. Her illustrated subjects are lent spikes, hair, and other typically untoward realities. Lips protrude, noses bulge. In their quote-unquote ugliness, Vittoria’s unique vision unfolds: a critique on physical identity, especially in regards to the ideal female form. It’s...

19 Questions with County LTD.

The word “tasteful” comes to mind when walking into County LTD. The color palette is purposefully narrow, a tight range of mostly camel, navy, nude, and white. There are tan leathers, light woods, polished brass. The ceramics are dimpled, hand-thrown. Everything, the homegoods in particular, takes on an immediate...

The Interrogator with Jamie Young

When chef Jamie Young opened Sunday in Brooklyn a little more than one year ago, he inherited a couple things: a beautifully rustic space carved out for the previous tenant, Isa, and the general neighborhood scepticism of a place named after what one might mistakenly imagine constitutes over-the-bridge interloping. While the...
