☞ BESPOKE: Silver Gilding at Vinateria

In the world of design, judging a book by its cover is standard practice so we always like to point out local businesses who are taking the exterior look of their establishments seriously.  Vinataria has successfully opened at the corner of 119th and FDB/8th Avenue but we keep noticing some finer details of the new eatery every time we pass by. The art of Verre Eglomise is the traditional way to apply gold leaf to glass for window signage but Vinateria has come up with a more modern look by updating things with silver leaf. This nod to the past but with a contemporary aesthetic sets this restaurant apart from others uptown but those who are interested in the gold leaf for their brownstone entrances or businesses should check out this local Sugar Hill artisanal business: LINK
