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.

16 Questions with Matthew Dillon Cohen

Blame it on digital, on filters, on the throwaway nature of today’s image-making machines. Most things, it seems, feel the same, neutered of uniqueness or, even, the desire to be unique at all.

The Interrogator with David Wilcox

While staring down a Journeymen-created gauntlet of crusty bread heaped with meat, a wood board smeared with pate, some duck on a plate, it’s easy to forget you’re in Atwater Village, and not tucked into a wood-fired room in provincial France. The restaurant, opened in late-2017 with chef David...

In the Studio with Nathaniel Mary Quinn

The walls of Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s Bed-Stuy studio are covered in images, wide-ranging in their content. The Queen of England, Vogue models, a ring through a bull’s nose.

In the Studio with Spencer Lewis

There are stories beneath the paint. Structures unseen. The work of Spencer Lewis is layered, both in meaning and material. On varied substrates (cardboard, linen) and with varied tools (pigment, enamel, spray paint), the Los Angeles-based artist creates large impasto paintings full of commanding vigor and energy.

On the Road with Yumi Zouma

Nearly seven years ago, an earthquake pushed the members of Yumi Zouma to the corners of the earth, spreading them between New York, Paris, and Christchurch, their hometown. As the story so often goes, they continued producing songs by emailing tracks back and forth, chipping away at their work...

In the Studio with Chen Chen & Kai Williams

Some of the best ideas seem to come from absolute boredom with the status quo. The aesthetic palette evolves, until the easiest things are staid, droll. Challenges, frankly, offer a relief from the tedium. Tackling challenges is what Chen Chen & Kai Williams, a design studio based in New...
