Welcome to Gappetto

In his culinary travels around the world, Chef Carlo Ponzi has collected a plate from each restaurant where he trained, worked, or was impressed. In asking for the plate, he told the restaurateur that it would be displayed in his home and someday in his restaurant. The plates, hailing from Lucas Carton in Paris and Boschendahl Vineyard in South Africa, from Bouley in Tribeca and Matteos Pizzeria in Naples, represent an international set of culinary experiences and diverse influences. The plates have made their move to the walls of PLATES and are cataloged in small albums for diners to peruse.
