Sweating the Details at Stulman's Joseph Leonard

New, 1 comment

Gabe Stulman, the former Front of House face of The Little Owl and Market Table, has been working over the last five months to put together a new restaurant, one Joeseph Leonard by name, at 170 Waverly Place near Seventh Ave. South. It's still too far off for completed pictures, but Vogue scores a rendering (right) and goes on an antiquing trip with the restaurateur to procure new design items. The takeaway: dude is sweating the details, trying for the faux antique look. Just some of the items that get name checked:

· a russet glass globe with exit emblazoned on it in white letters
· a 1920s sign he found in Chicago
· a metal-lined milk box (for champagne)
· small wooden crates (breadbaskets)
· a porcelain wall-mount sink—no pedestal
· a caged light fixture
· waiters’ terminal, made of 100-year-old Southern yellow pine.
· an armoire used to hold silverware
· antique frame to hols pictures of the investors’ grandfathers hanging near images of the restaurant’s namesakes

He and chef Jim McDuffee hope to open by July 15.
