Your Favorite NYC Restaurants, Illustrated

In NYC, it feels like there's a new restaurant opening up every day. While we love checking out the latest eateries, we've also become attached to a handful of "old reliables." In fact, we've been known to forego a night at a trendy new establishment in favor of an oldie-but-goodie. And, it looks like we're not alone. Brooklyn-based artist Massimo Mongiardo has created illustrations of some of our favorite dinner-time go-tos: ACME, Café Gitane, Café Select, La Esquina, and The Smile.
Mongiardo's drawings are limited-print, at just 50 runs per design, and each one is signed and numbered by Mongiardo himself. Click through to see all the illustrations, on view and available for purchase at Knowlita NYC. Of course, we're planning on snagging a few of these, so the collection will also be on view in a living room near you.
