Sophisticated interior with excellent Italian food. Maya was a friend of Judd's daughter who accompanied her to Marfa after the death of her father... and never left. A theme of many of those we met over the last several days- many of them New Yorkers.

Love Italian style an example of which is having a geometric sofa in the restroom. Not sure about the wicker chair shoved in the corner. Traveled from Penn Station uptown with a male friend recently returned from Venice with a gorgeous blue hand tailored jacket. Now THAT's Italian!

If I can eat the kind of Italian food I just had here for lunch everyday, then this is how I want to spend my dotage.

Hard to tell, but tis shelf is made of metal...I thought maybe zinc, nbut looking at this shot, it seems to have too much color for that. When I exited, I noticed that the floor tiles seemed to be made of the same material. By the way, lovely Italian food, lightly prepared and great decaf cappuccino.

Latanzi: Manhattan, NY

I am becoming a bit obsessed with how extra rolls of toilet paper are stacked. This seems practical, yet elegant given the marble shelf and the Italian tiles. This is my brother's go to restaurant before the theater. Dinner was fine, but the lemon ice, served in a frozen lemon rind, was awesome.

Olio Restaurant: Groton, CT

Do you suppose this table and chair are to invite the clientelle to do a little pre or post meal writing?  It has been years since I ate at the nouveau Italian restaurant which was packed when we arived at 12:30 and completely vacant when we departed at 2pm.  The reverse of what one finds in NYC. I did find their take on the ubiquitous beet salad to be delicious and inventive.

Caffe e Vino: Brooklyn, New York

Too bad about the trash can. Otherwise a lovely restroom still life going on here. My second time to this Italian bistro before an event at B.A.M. Good food delivered quickly. Saw Richard III and the critics did not lie for a change. It was spectacular. Kevin Spacey was extraordinary and the modern setting really worked.
