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.
