2008_03_graphics.jpgToday Zagat runs a charming little ditty on well known graphic designer Louise Fili, who does the logos, menus, and check presenters for some major restaurants around town. She discusses designing the logo for Sfoglia, the luggage tags given away at Charlie Palmer’s Metrazur, and a design idea gone wrong at the Mermaid Inn: "Initially at the original East Village Mermaid Inn, the bill was served in sardine tins that had been painstakingly bent open, scrubbed clean of their sardine odor and brushed with clear nail polish to dull the edges. Unfortunately, the lure of a half-opened can was too much for many customers, and one by one the presenters were ripped open and made unusable." [Zagat]
