One week since opening, and Barchetta is making lots of noise, even topping the latest Manhattan Heatmap from Eater. Here’s a rundown of recent press including a look inside from talented photographer Daniel Krieger for Eater, and more great shots from Oleg March for UrbanDaddy.
Grub Street has the lowdown on the menu, and The Daily Meal has an early review of the food and the concept calling it, ” the most intriguing and satisfying seafood-centric restaurant to open in Manhattan since Marea.”
Paper Magazine gets into the act with a feature on LDV Hospitality’s John Meadow and the story of how he lured fish whisperer Dave Pasternack to come on board, as well as his travel secrets.
It’s been a great first week and we’re excited to be part of the team at Barchetta. Go check it out.

Barchetta, the highly anticipated 23rd Street restaurant we designed for acclaimed chef Dave Pasternack and LDV Hospitality’s John Meadow, opened last night. Featuring the freshest, locally sourced ingredients in a casual, light-filled space that mixes vintage and hand-crafted furniture and fixtures, Barchetta is our interpretation of a bustling, neighborhood trattoria. Here is a look at the menu from Zagat , and some details on the concept and the design from WWD .
Stay tuned for more pictures of the space and the food.

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.

Chris is profiled in the March 2012 issue of Hospitality Design in a feature called Meet the Minds Behind Restaurant Design.
Thanks to HDMag for the Q + A and all the love.
Chris Sheffield says he didn’t always know he wanted to be a designer, but he definitely found his calling. From American Fish in Las Vegas to Corkbuzz wine bar in New York and Arrow Swim Club in Philadelphia, his diverse portfolio shows not only the depth of his talent, but his ability to create spaces that inspire and engage the guests.

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.

Recently, Chris was interviewed for a feature in Dining & Designing, a new column in which Eater National and Curbed National profile and explore the design of restaurants.
Thanks to Julie Earle-Levine for a great Q+A.
Philadelphia-based Chris Sheffield, who started SLDesign in 2005, masterminded the interiors of Bills Bar & Burger in Manhattan, the 400-seat largest standalone burger joint in the country, Amalia at the Dream Hotel (also in NYC), and the award-winning Postcard Inn (St. Pete Beach, FL). He’s currently working on revamping Stone Rose in NYC’s Time Warner Building, a new restaurant for Stephen Starr at the New York Historical Society, a swank private swim club and restaurant in Philadelphia, plus a cool new wine bar concept for the world’s youngest female master sommelier. He spoke to us about themed restaurants, the thrill of working for Starr and Steve Hanson, and his desire to create an urban hotel in Philadelphia. Or Paris. Either works.
