In partnership with Felt+Fat, we’re launching Kensington, our latest dinnerware collection curated for sharing.
This menagerie of minimalist shapes comes in a calming palette of saturated neutrals, including taupe, pigeon gray, slate black and satin white.
Elevate your pastry and buffet displays with these mix and
match-able platters, available in 11 ½” and 12 ½” rounds as well as 12”x7”
To complement our debut Canopy collection with Felt+Fat, we’ve also brought in the highly functional 8” nesting bowl, our ideal coupe vessel.
Felt+Fat is known most ubiquitously for bright, poppy glaze
colors, but we’re equally impressed with their design team’s ability to refine
and perfect these four neutral tones. Felt+Fat’s entire range of dinnerware and
coffee service pieces, which are made in the heart of Philadelphia, can be
delivered from our Elverson warehouse five days a week.

Every year, bartenders, mixologists and beverage enthusiasts descend upon the city of New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail. In this month’s issue of Total Food Service, Morgan Tucker explains why this week-long bonanza of thirst quenching sensational events and parties is transforming the hospitality world one ‘clink’ at a time. Read the full article here.
Rotondo meets the high quality standards of all Arthur Krupp porcelain. The German, feldspathic clay is actually harder than steel! Careful firing over 50 hours and an excellent fusion of ingredients give the porcelain its characteristics of hardness, texture, lack of porosity and resistance to mechanical and thermal shock. All pieces are oven, microwave and (of course) dishwasher safe, and will match cleanly with any other porcelain brands.
Rotondo is further elevated by the line’s wide range of shapes. Classic coupe plates and bowls, maximizing plating area, anchor the collection. These are supplemented by unique accessories, large format options and, of course, full tea and coffee service. Everything for anything, anywhere – be it a dining room, guestroom, or banquet hall – morning, noon, and night!
Drinique was founded in 2007, and since its genesis, has become the industry leader in shatter resistant drinkware. In this month’s issue of Total Food Service magazine, Sarah Bulmer writes about what it takes to make it and not break it in a product category saturated with copycats and fakers, proving that Drinique is truly the only way to drink unique.

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!
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!
New products don’t stay new for long but new partners can become lifelong relationships. In this month’s issue of Total Food Service Magazine, Andrew Geoffrey Beres and Morgan Tucker give their hot take on the flatware brands we’re most excited about as we head into summer specification season, including our newest partnership with Studio William based in the United Kingdom.

At Maison Yaki, the newest project from the team behind Olmsted, the distance between Paris and Tokyo has never been shorter.
Petits plats meet yakitori on Executive Chef Greg Baxtrom’s expressive menu, and the front of the house mirrors Chef’s creativity and daring.
Contrast abounds throughout the restaurant. Servers sport black and white striped shirts in true Parisian fashion, while custom red striped Figgjo Klassik plates evoke the land of the rising sun. What’s black, white and red all over? Maison Yaki, of course.
Skewers fly to the table on Figgjo’s Gastronorm 1/8 trays. This 6” x 4-¾” dynamo is a small but mighty plate that shines in Figgjo’s classic optic white. It’s part of an extensive range that travels beautifully from the pass to the table and is equally suited for both.
Aruba flatware from Steelite winks at classic French cafes everywhere. This pattern features a subtle cross-stitch added to the traditional Contour pattern to create an elevated take on a traditional favorite you’ll find all across Europe. Nested inside a branded napkin fold alongside ruby red chopsticks, it’s the ideal setup for Baxtrom’s menu of unforgettable fare.
We’ve been working with Baxtrom’s team at Olmsted since the restaurant’s inception in 2016. This Star Chefs Rising Star continues to rise to the occasion with this new neighborhood-friendly and creative concept.
Add a Vesper or another playful take on a classic cocktail, served in Gold Miners glassware, and you’re on your way to an unforgettable evening. Either in the dining room or at Maison Yaki’s outdoor patio, a meal at this newcomer is not to be missed.
Walking through the doorway of Wayan, you’re instantly transported. Antique tealights hang over an underlit bar rich with brass and copper hues. Oversized palm fronds hang lazily over candlelit tables filled with diners in intimate conversation.
Faces may blur, but Cedric Vongerichten’s highly conceptual French-Indonesian menu shines in a wide range of dinnerware from Haand Hospitality. You’ll see classic Haand shapes and glazes alongside some new favorites.
The Nara bowl hides layers of flavors and textures with its
curved, high edges, while Haand’s new Birch glaze adds a peppery backdrop for
some of Wayan’s most intricate dishes. Tamarind glazed baby back pork ribs
studded with sesame seeds and crusted in a vibrant herbal spice rub are just
one composition that dazzles on Birch.
Don’t skip the lobster noodles, Vongerichten’s essential melding of French and Indonesian fare where buttery richness meets briny umami notes. Twirl these glossy noodles around Amefa’s Matteware fork, featuring a striking matte black PVD finish that adds an anchor of industrial attitude to a tabletop inspired by organic vessels in shades of black, white and blue.
Cocktails are served in Finesse by Hospitality Brands and brought to your table on Jansen & Co copper trays from Serax.
When the meal is over and you find yourself back on a quiet stretch of Spring Street in NoLiTa, you’re reminded that you’re no longer on vacation, but the memories of Wayan will remain.
Morgan Tucker took a trip down under last month to visit the holy grail of pottery. At the Robert Gordon factory, Tucker brings us behind the scenes of one of the world’s most beloved ceramic design studios, one that’s drenched in natural sunlight and steeped in tradition. With an eye toward the future – Earth is set to arrive in our warehouse in just one month – Tucker explains why this factory will be on our radar and in our hearts for many years to come.
