The inspiration behind Craft was driven by two nostalgic individuals - Jo Pinheiro & Chris Mandos, in a quest to develop a unique restaurant with words such as hand-made, old school, authentic, attention to detail, artisanal and personal as a major part of the Craft vocabulary.
"People want to be taken back to an era when one only bought ingredients and not mass produced meals”. The focus is on individuality and hospitality and doing things old school in a modern way.
The look has a hint of Steampunk complimented by the natural elements: antique mirrors, natural woods, natural leathers, bentwood chairs, deep buttoned leather couches, face brick, parquet flooring, copper, stainless steel and retro tiles.
Located on the corner of Fourth Avenue to the East and Thirteenth Street to the North, stacking doors open the restaurant up to the bustle of the high street and natural sunlight throughout the day.
In the evening the warm glow emitted from the copper clad wood fired oven and the overhead retro Edison bulbs is comforting. You very rarely find patrons on their cellphones, instead you find them engaging each other in conversations. In describing the tone the words “vibey’’ ”cheerful” and “chatty” come to mind.
