DE MARIA NEW YORK
All female team
De Maria is open all day – from breakfast to late night drinks in the newly opened basement bar. It’s the latest project of dj and music producer Grace Lee, who worked with Kanye West, and chef Camille Becerra, an Instagram famous chef with almost 80.000 followers because everyone loves here take on food. She had chef residencies at Cafe Henrie and worked at Navy. They also worked with Amy Morris and Anna Polonsky of MP Shift for the interior – who also did the design and branding for Hotel Bienvenue in Paris among others. An all female team as you see.
Banana bread for breakfast
The interior is beautiful with lots of wood, soft color tones, striking art on the walls and personally I love the arches in the building. The bar is striking too – and the place to go for a cocktail. There’s also a small terrace in front of the restaurant. I’ve tried their banana bread as a second breakfast, but I really like to come back for the tiger bowl, summer dragon bowl or the ceviche. You see: healthy dishes that makes you happy.
