The cold weather has definitely settled in, so there’s no better time to head to the Mainline’s new mecca for seasonal comfort food: The Saint James, the 125-seater we designed for Michael Schulson and Rob Wasserman that opened in October. Here’s a look inside.

The March 2012 issue of Gotham Magazine features a fashion editorial shot at our favorite NY restaurant.
Caffè Storico is Stephen Starr’s Italian-inspired cicchetteria located in the New-York Historical Society. Executive chef Jim Burke helms the kitchen, turning out small plates, handmade pastas, entrées, and classic desserts; an all-Italian wine list rounds out the menu. The restaurant, designed by SLDesign, incorporates both modern and vintage elements such as leather banquette seating and china selected from the museum’s collection.

It feels as though we’ve been living in New York for the past two months, but with several new projects opening since Thanksgiving, there’s finally an opportunity to share our latest and greatest.
Caffe Storico is Stephen Starr’s newest restaurant. Located at the recently renovated New-York Historical Society, we designed the 75-seat space to evoke the spirit of a contemporary Venetian cicchettiria; a combination of modern furniture and bold color in a historic envelope that recalls the the charm of the museum’s 19th century Victorian past and the Italian aesthetic. Adorning the walls are Chinese and 19th century European porcelain and Staffordshire china—all from the New-York Historical Society’s collection—adding splashes of blue and green hues to the warm white space.
The restaurant just opened to the public on Saturday, but Eater has a sneak peek inside the space.
Gothamist also has a great gallery of images.

Summer fun for the young… and the young at heart.
With the end of summer right around the corner, we wanted to post some images of our recent photoshoot at Arrow Swim Club. We spent a day of fun in the sun and a night by the fire at ASC capturing images of the space. Thanks to all of the models, hair and make-up geniuses and fantastic wardrobe stylists who responded to our casting call.
Of course, a very special thanks to M Scott Whitson and Marie Alyse Rodriguez for the great photos.
