What does an all-day café have in common with a cocktail bar, or even an in-room amenities tray? No, this is not the beginning of a bad joke. It’s a real question, and the answer is glassware.

Re-imagining the classic faceted café glass, Hospitality Brands’ FLEETING is for the ephemeral moments you want to make last forever. The collection’s crystal-cut look draws in the eye while accentuating its refreshing contents. Casual yet refined, and referencing past, present, and future with a classic and enduring form, Fleeting is truly versatile. Combined with the line’s durability, stackability, and unbeatable price point, this makes it an easy choice!

Fleeting by Hospitality Brands

An 8 ounce tumbler is ideal for water or juice, of course, but it can easily double as an approachable, relaxed, wine glass. Fleeting’s 9-¾ ounce whiskey glass is another horse we’d bet on for the rigors of foodservice. An 11 ¼ ounce highball rounds out the collection; the perfect Collins glass for cocktails, soda, or a tall, summery, iced tea. We’re thirsty already!

Earth has landed. This element-inspired dinnerware collection by Robert Gordon Australia is a true ode to our planet and the diversity of color and texture it contains. The name was chosen to inspire closeness to the literal source of dinnerware – fitting given Robert Gordon Australia ’s commitment to sustainability in all phases of production.

Earth unites organic forms with the harmonious variation of reactive glaze on high-fired porcelain and is available in pink, black, and natural colorways. Pink evokes the blush of pink sand on a warm beach. Black is nearly volcanic, featuring a satiny, anthracite background with tones of chocolate and black speckling. Natural is a taupe and brown speckled eggshell glaze that reminds us of a nest nurturing the beginnings of life.

Earth allows your food to sing as well. The line includes plates, bowls, small dishes, and even a welcoming, handle-less mug. With this collection, casual and composed plating is equally at home. We see these vessels as the perfect partner for tangled noodle dishes and shareable side offerings – after all, they did make their debut at Chinese Tuxedo. Earth is also a stellar choice for banquet facilities looking to offer a more homespun service on durable porcelain.

Crucial Detail’s Boro explores light, transparency, and playful interactions – asymmetrically. It is made of low expansion glass which can easily handle a wide temperature range, allowing for tremendous creativity in plating and presentation, and is available in 6”, 8”, and 10” diameters. LMT is honored to be the first to bring this collection to the foodservice industry.

Boro is the culmination of years of Martin Kastner’s exploration of non-traditional manipulation of borosilicate glass. His goal was to simply create a depression in a flat pane of glass. A key element, Boro’s striking asymmetry, was also an impediment to manufacturing. Conventional techniques simply didn’t meet Martin’s exacting standards – they rarely do! After much experimentation, he developed a flame-forming technique and specialized tooling, that enabled a clean, perfectly fluid transition between the flat plane and a bowl. The bowls are now individually flame-formed and annealed at Crucial Detail – one of a kind production for a truly unique collection.

For more than a decade, Crucial Detail has explored the synergy of food and design, working at the forefront of fine dining in collaborations with the world’s best chefs. Each piece in the collection, whether for the tabletop or bar, is uniquely stylish, chef-driven, and forward thinking. Founder Martin Kastner has established himself as the most influential tableware designer in modern American history, sweeping design awards and helping Team USA secure their historic silver and gold wins at the world’s most prestigious culinary competition, Bocuse d’Or.

The steak knife has taken on far more responsibility than it was originally…cut out for.

As the industry’s awareness of meat consumption continues to increase, we’re now seeing the steak knives we’ve come to know and love adapted into alternative main courses. Restaurateurs are sticking our classic French handles from Laguiole into everything from cattle to cauliflower steaks.

We’ve found our latest blade obsession. New Age, designed by French cutler Jean Dubost, sleekly pairs a black ABS handle with a black serrated blade. Depending who you ask, it’s the black tuxedo or little black dress of knives. It’s the perfect addition to a set of PVD flatware or a tabletop studded with matte black accents. Our recommendation: Metropole black, a glossy black flatware line featuring long, slender lines.

New Age is for a new era of dining, where utensils are more than mere tools, and guests are enabled to steer their experience in new and thoughtful ways. While honoring the past, we look toward a New Age in culinary and hospitality innovation.

The hospitality industry has coveted Pascal Naessen’s industrially inspired flatware range for several years, but it always seemed a bit…out of reach. It was almost too cool.

Now, in 2019, we’re excited to announce that this beautiful stonewashed pattern is in stock for immediate delivery.

The designer of this unique collection is Pascal Naessens, a Belgian food and lifestyle personality who created Pure for Serax with comfort, function and effortless style in mind. Her flatware range injects a bit of funk and warmth to a cold, stainless world of flatware options in the foodservice market. She’s a female artisan we have our eye on in 2019 and beyond. Just this year, she launched a new range of cookware and utensils that we think we’ll be seeing in open restaurant kitchens and banquet spaces very soon. In addition to flatware and cookware, Naessens’ first product launch with Serax was a refined rustic stoneware that compliment the full Pure portfolio.

If you are unfamiliar with Serax, get familiar. This creative thinktank applies the same school of thought to its various flatware patterns that it does to dinnerware, glassware, serving pieces and furniture. Serax supports designers and artisans that take functional items and stretch their forms until the final product straddles artwork and utility, leaving the guest with a memorable experience and unforgettable presentation. That thought process is similar to what the world’s greatest chefs use in the creations of their menus and various restaurant concepts, and that is perhaps why so many chefs choose to source Serax for their tabletops.

PURE originally launch in a stonewashed black that left owners and operators drooling. Now this pattern can be yours in stonewashed black, copper or stainless as we are stocking all three available finishes.

PURE flatware is now in stock in these eight following sizes:

Salad/Dessert Fork, 7”

Table Fork, 8 ¼”

Table Knife, 9”

Dessert Knife, 7 7/8”

Table Spoon, 8 ¼”

Dessert Spoon, 7”

Teaspoon, 5 ½”

Espresso Spoon, 4 1/3”

              For samples and more information on this collection, please email lmt@singerequipment.com.

This freshly stocked flatware pattern is our newest darling. Vintageware is 18/0 stainless steel in the same, classic and adaptable “Austin” pattern of Goldware (brushed gold), Roseware (brushed copper) and Matteware (matte black).    Wait no longer than 1-2 business days for your vintage-inspired flatware now available at an incredibly low price point. Frame your food with a bit of antique inspiration and set your table in style with this cozy collection. The Austin pattern was pioneered by the LMT team in 2017 and has seen success among chefs and operators looking for a bit of low key attitude in their flatware. Vintageware is now in stock in these six functional sizes: Salad/Dessert Fork, 7 ¼” Table Fork, 8 ¼” Table Knife, 8 ¼” Table Spoon, 8 ¼” Dessert Spoon, 7 ¼” Teaspoon, 5 ¾” For samples and more information on this collection, please email lmt@singerequipment.com.

  Only an artist can take steel and transform it into a sinuous, undulating wave, imbuing a solid item with the illusion of motion.

  Robert Welch has done just that with his Drift collection of barware and tea service now available in the United States through Steelite. These pieces are designed to be both aesthetically unique and highly functional and are as luxurious as they are hardworking.

  The Drift collection is comprehensive. There are single and double-walled wine and Champagne buckets, serving trays, and tea service, which includes a three-tiered cake stand.

  Each piece is made from 18/10 stainless steel and hand polished to a light-reflecting mirror finish. The gentle curves of the collection create a softness that belies its solidness and durability.

  Drift will transform your bar or tabletop, adding a dramatic, organic wave in cool metal.

  We’re thrilled to offer this UK-designed collection stateside. It will be on display at our booth (#1602-1729) during the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show in New York City, from March 3rd-5th. We hope to see you there. For more information about this collection and the IRFSNY 2019 Show, send an email to lmt@singerequipment.com.

When finalizing your place setting, linens are important. The napkin is the first and last material your guests will touch when they sit down in your dining space.

It can sometimes be challenging to find the perfect vessel—trust us, we know.

That’s why in 2017, we collaborated with Martin Kastner, Designer and Founder of Crucial Detail, to percolate on his infamous collection of unique pouring vessels, known as Parentheses. We decided that two new larger format jugs were what we needed, as soon as possible.
