Additional Update on the Use of Culturalpatina Art in New Times Square Resturant October 07, 2015 16:52

Several weeks back, I reported that several of Culturalpatina's historic South American pieces of pottery were acquired by a NY design firm for use in a new restaurant in Times Square. I can now report that the design firm was Home Studios (hOmE) ( homestudios.nyc) and the restaurant was the Dos Caminos which is the firms flagship unit in Times Square. Details follow: Times Square: Earlier this month, BR Guest opened a 250 seat version of Mexican crowd-pleaser Dos Caminos in the W Hotel. The new restaurant takes over the old Whiskey Bar space and part of Blue Fin.  (That restaurant, by the way, is undergoing a revamp right now, but it's going to reopen next month.)  The new Dos Caminos was designed by HoMe, the hip Brooklyn-based studio that also created the dining rooms at Paulie Gee'sRebelle, and Ramona, among others. Ivy Stark's menu includes small plates and lighter dishes that have never been served at the Dos Caminos restaurants before. Stark also plans to grind her own nixtamal and make fresh tortillas in the restaurant. Status: Certified open; 1567 Broadway, 212-918-1330. https://www.facebook.com/Doscaminosrestaurants/photos_stream

 

This was quite an unusual project for hOmE due to the size-they normally do not work on large commercial projects. It was a real privledge to support hOmE by providing the items from culturalpatina and we believe it is a great testimonial about the quality and uniquness of our art forms. Additional infor can be found on hOmE as follows.
