As you might remember from my podcast with Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, of Roman and Williams Guild, I fell completely in love with not only their creativity (that goes without saying) but also the lifestyle they’ve created for themselves. Their life between New York and Montauk, Robin’s love for gardening and Stephen’s obsession with surfing. The way they met, the way they work, the way they live.
That’s why I was so happy to co-host a diner with them at their New York space, The Guild (you have to go!!!) – we celebrated the launch of their new Soleil Du Guild Original No. 3 candle, our friendship, and also six months of The Guild. In these six months, their restaurant, La Mercerie, has become the talk of the town, and I can’t be prouder to say that the chef is a French woman, so boom, World Cup and that, I am prouder and prouder to be French these days ;)
