@tomcolicchio on craft and Craft: "The name came about because I really believed this style of cooking is more about the craftsmanship and less about the artistry. The design of the restaurant followed from that. I wanted to see how things were put together. I wanted to see the filaments in the lightbulbs, to see the weld in the wine cabinet. We wanted to limit the amount of ingredients we used in the design, the textures—there’s leather, steel, wood—and to do as few painted surfaces as possible. We had these beautiful cherry wood tables and I wanted people to see them, not to cover them." (Photo: @aliciachofoto for @craft_newyork)
