SWA Architecture Weekly Blog post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  The blog where we take a look at projects that SWA Architecture has had the pleasure to be a part of.  This post will be no different.  If you didn't see our post last week, take a look because it was the start of a bunch of projects from the Lusardi brothers.  Last week we looked at Lusardi's, one of their first restaurants.  This week we take a look at Due, another fantastic restaurant of theirs.






Due is a casually elegant, comfortable and cozy Italian restaurant located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at 1396 3rd Avenue between E 79th and E 80th Street.  No matter what your mood is, Due's menu has something to offer.  Like Lusardi's, it is quite the gem and is a go to spot for Italian food.




Due was originally designed by the famous architect Charles Gwathmey.  A well known architect based in New York City, Gwathmey is most notable work is his famous design of the 1992 renovations of Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum.  SWA Architecture has come in did some minor modifications to the front of the to the restaurant.





That's it this week for the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  Stay tuned for a possible bonus post to come this week covering another restaurant from the Lusardi brothers.  Give us a follow on instagram if you haven't - @swa_architecture

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog Post

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture Weekly blog post.  The blog where we give you the reader a chance to see some beautiful projects in the Tri-State area.  For the next couple of posts we are going to look at a restaurant team, the Lusardi brothers, Mauro and Luigi, that has put over ten wonderful restaurants all over the city.




Let's start off with one of their first restaurants that they put up, Lusardi's.  Located at 1494 2nd avenue, this spot is a gem in the Upper East Side.  Lusardi's opened up in 1982 and is a staple for patrons who enjoy warm, gracious service in elegant surroundings.  The menu, skillfully executed by Chef Caludio Meneghini, features a divers selection of traditional Northern Italian dishes, combining modern cuisine with both regional and rustic accents.  Claudio offers a unique and cultured expertise with game and wild mushrooms.




SWA Architecture has worked with the Lusardi brothers for over twenty years, making them one of our oldest clients.  We have done various projects with them and will show you them in the forthcoming weeks.  For Lusardi's, SWA are the architects an expediters for the interior renovations and Public Assembly.




That's it this week for the SWA Architecture Weekly blog post.  Stay tuned for more to come from these owners.  As you can tell from the pictures the restaurant looks amazing.  Also, don't forget to give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture
