We’re in the Beast!

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

The Daily Beast named Tres Gatos one of the top 10 new restaurants in the COUNTRY! We designed the interiors with the talented architect firm Helios Design Group as well as the logo, signage and website. The review says one of the biggest pulls is the ambiance! We had a blast working with the owner David Doyle. Get thee to Jamaica Plain for some tapas!

My super talented and big hearted brother, David Scharfenberg, the news editor at the Providence Phoenix, went to New Orleans to report on the BP Spills effect on the food chain; from the oyster man to the chef and all the people in between. Read his story.

1,900 year old bread

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010


This loaf of bread found was in the ruins of Pompeii. I was obsessed with volcanoes (tsunamis, quicksand and killer bees) as a little kid. It shook me to the core, the notion that, poof and it is over.  It was scarier than Hiroshima. That was a man-made atrocity. A person could be reasoned with, right? Right? But this was nature!
