Last week my brother, husband and I went for a Christmas family lunch atThe Standard Grill. It was a perfect New York Christmas scene with a little skating rink and trees with white fairy lights outside the restaurant. The red and white interior looked beautiful with pine cones decorating the window sills. Even the waiters funny plaid outfits look kind-of-ok in the spirit of Christmas.
In the main dining room the mosaic floor tiles are thousands of nickel pennys. I think this is such a fun and unique idea.
I think that the contrasting white dipped chair legs in the front dining room are such a cool detail.
The interiors are by Roman and Williams. I am a huge admirer of their work. In the following video they explain their ethos and approach to design. It’s such a great interview. I would really recommend watching it. I find them such an inspiration: http://vimeo.com/10452010
