The simultaneously compact/packed wall of plates at Sant Ambroeus on Lafayette Street are just the beginning of general manager Alireza Niroomand‘s plan for redecoration. Niroomand has commissioned influencers, fashionistas, artists–all Sant Ambroeus groupies–to partake in a sort of culinary art collective.
You can’t take your eyes off the wall. Where to look? Donald Robertson‘s signature lips, or Brian Atwood‘s gem-adorned fancy plate? And that’s just a small selection. Other contributors include Leandra Medine (The Man Repeller), Deer Dana, and Edward Enninful. Looking will have to suffice because these plates are not for eating off of or taking home. But that’s okay–it just means a couple extra visits to the SoHo hotspot might be in order.
