We’ve always been big fans of the design website, Remodelista and have found inspiration in many of the places they’ve featured. That’s why, late last week, we were thrilled to see our new Silkstone Loft had been featured. Check out the full piece here: The Silkstone Loft: An Office by Day, A Dining Club By Night.
Travel and Leisure selected the property for it’s 2012 edition of their “World’s Greatest Hotels” book. Not only was it listed but the main entrance photo was selected to be the main page for the United States and Canada section of the book. A full spread.
Congratulations to all! Here’s to another happy season.
A small private room in the back of the Belasco Theater was designed for the cast of ‘End of the Rainbow’. With portraits of Ms. Garland herself on the walls and furniture of the era, the room has a feel that evokes the 1950′s. The centerpiece in the room is a vintage chest that designer Kate Dougherty repurposed in to a stocked bar. Gifts and Flowers have been arriving steadily as Tracie Bennett continues to impress.
Our second, smaller cafe at Frieze New York included pre-packaged sandwiches and salads- all original recipes from our kitchen team. Our in-house design team created branded Fat Radish stickers and menus for each item served. This space also doubled as an espresso bar with Laughing Man coffee and espresso drinks.
This past week, The Fat Radish operated two pop-up cafes at the Frieze Art Fair, taking place in New York City for the first time ever. The half-mile long tent was set up on Randall’s Island with 182 exhibitors from around the world. In addition to our freshly made salads and sandwiches, Roberta’s, Frankie’s, The Standard Beer Garden and Sant Ambroeus all operated spaces, serving the diverse crowd of artists and art-lovers.

Take a look at how we built a kaleidoscope entryway at Le Poisson Rouge this past February. Owner, Phil Winser conceptualized and directed its building, which took only 8 hours, and served as the entrance to the event.
