Dinnerware has become more than just a vessel. It’s a canvas for a chef’s culinary creations. The best of it doesn’t overshadow the contents, it elevates them. In our industry, that means finding a sturdy, reliable brand that also highlights seasonal ingredients and the chef’s artistry.
A restaurant opening in New York City is rarely—if ever—perfectly timed. Alvin Cailan’s latest opening inside The Nolitan Hotel might be the closest thing to perfect. The tabletop at The Usual features a highly curated selection from Anfora’s portfolio of dinnerware that mixes and matches glaze colors and finishes to truly show off the cuisine.
Next time you’re in San Francisco, make a stop at The Beehive, a cocktail bar in the heart of the Mission. This newly opened watering hole draws inspiration from the mid-century modern style of the 60’s, and the team carefully selected their glassware to match the era.
We’re back from this year’s National Restaurant Association show and buzzing with excitement for the year ahead. Our team hit the Windy City last week to swarm brand new collections to hit our shores this season. It was a fantastic show, and a great preview of what you can expect in 2018/2019.
Eataly has done it again with TERRA, just in time for summer. LA has a new watering hole, and we couldn’t think of a dreamier rooftop to perch. It’s about more than just people-watching, though. Taking inspiration from earth, gin and fire, TERRA emphasizes the garden, the bar, and the oven, and balances all three.
This week, our partners at Bauscher Hepp are featuring CARRARA on their blog. This LMT exclusive dinnerware collection from Tafelstern evokes the Carrara quarries of Tuscany, and is inspiring chefs around the country.
Close your eyes and picture a classic French brasserie. Now turn up the volume. Welcome to La Cafette, a cool and relaxed rotisserie that draws inspiration from the past, but in a very contemporary way.
Our parent company turned 100 years young this year, and we celebrated with a spectacular, scintillating, centennial tradeshow in New York City. We’re starting our second century in fine form!
Okay, so we’re not actually going to list 100 reasons…that would be aggressive, even by our standards. HOWEVER – it is worth mentioning that the 2018 International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York will be our company’s 100th anniversary, so you’re bound to witness some tabletop greatness if you can attend. We’d love to have you—our treat!
