New York, New York. December, 2012

For lunch on my recent visit to Manhattan, my friend Nick made reservations at Il Buco on Great Jones Street. Tucked in behind a shop of upscale Italian groceries (fine cheeses, breads, sausages, olive oils, etc.) the dining room fronts an open kitchen and seats about 40 people at two communal tables, some two-ups and a bar. The food was excellent: We split three appetizers (grilled octopus with grapefruit, sausage with lentils, fried rabbit) and two cheeses (from Emilia-Romagna) and left satisfied. At one point, we looked up...and saw this chandelier above us. Italian rustic meets Steam Punk through the skills and vision of artist Warren Muller.
