    Dining & Dialogue: Industry Kitchen

    Thank you to everyone who joined on June 12th for our first Dining & Dialogue! We shared a communal meal while architect Wid Chapman unpacked the design decisions that led to the creation of Industry Kitchen in the South Street Seaport.

    Be on the lookout for info on the next in this series, later this summer.

    About Dining & Dialogue
    Bringing together architectural and culinary enthusiasts, this series explores the intersection between design, branding, storytelling and marketing a concept.

    Industry Kitchen
    Playing off the seaport’s vintage industrial setting, Industry Kitchen occupies an angular structure featuring reclaimed plank wood, black tile and raw concrete. Floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly separate the indoor and outdoor areas, framing a picturesque view of the waterfront that can be enjoyed from any seat
