The Innovation and Creativity of NYC’s Craft Restaurant

Chef Tom Colicchio’s Manhattan restaurant Craft prioritized the sourcing of top-notch ingredients over culinary trickery and in the process created not only a long-lasting NYC favorite, but also an industry trend. That ethos can also be seen in the restaurant’s decor, with the “signature bare wooden tables, artful placemats and dangling Edison bulbs,” features that also found their way into restaurants across the nation. The Daily Beast celebrates the eatery’s 15-year anniversary with a look back.
