One of the few benefits of COVID-19 has been the addition of more outdoor dining, with restaurants throughout our five boroughs expanding their footprints in some very creative ways.
This past summer, we strolled through Chinatown, exploring an open-air dining project entitled Assembly for Chinatown, which included the personalization of thirteen businesses on nine sites ~ and growing.
Now, as the cold weather sets in, we were quite taken with a closed-dining concept by the Italian restaurant A Pasta Bar in SoHo, incorporating the work of local artist, DAIN NYC, who outfitted the villetta’s with eight custom artwork pieces.
These greenhouse-style cottages, adorned in gorgeous florals, pay homage to their neighborhood’s artistic history through their partnership with local artist. DAIN NYC, an influential street artist, who combines his visual language of graffiti with collaged old portraits of Hollywood glamour.
The end result is a feast for our eyes. A Pasta Bar is located at 330 West Broadway at Grand Street in SoHo.
