Part of Crafted Hospitality

After citing morels as his favorite food in an interview, chef Tom Colicchio, then at the helm of Gramercy Tavern, got to thinking — Where can you go to eat just mushrooms, or order a bowl of sweet, tender peas when they’re at their best in early spring?

The idea of Craft evolved from there. This would be a restaurant that mimicked the experience of dining in someone’s home – simply prepared dishes highlighting pristine, seasonal ingredients served family-style; guests building their own plates from dishes brought to the center of the table.
