editor’s letter

The last watch I bought was not actually for me. It was for my son, but inspired by my father. He’s had the same quartz Casio for as long as I can remember; he’ll happily tell you it’s not been serviced in 40 years and cost a fraction of any of mine, etc. As you can tell, watches don’t get him excited—Italian sports cars, on the other hand . . . Anyway, as I grew into watch appreciation in my late 20s I became increasingly aware that at no time was I likely to have that touching moment when my father takes off the old Rolex or Patek that he’s worn for years and, dewy eyed, bestows it on me—at which point he’d repeat the story about how his father gave…

logo mojo

No one knows the power of a logo better than Louis Vuitton. And this month, the house is letting you swap in your initials for its iconic Ls and Vs.

feast of the seven cultures

Around Christmastime, Italian Americans traditionally indulge in a celebration brought over from the Old World: the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Usually, a cavalcade of seafood and pasta ensues, but chef Chris Cosentino wanted to mix things up a bit. He’s getting other cultures involved for seven separate nights of feasting by inviting some of the country’s best chefs to his Napa Valley restaurant, Acacia House, to cook one-night-only tasting menus. Each chef will prepare a dinner that expresses the country they represent. The series kicks off with James Beard Award–winning chef Alon Shaya of Saba in New Orleans cooking the Israeli cuisine that made him famous. In the ensuing weeks, he’ll be followed by Sarah Grueneberg of Monteverde in Chicago preparing Italian, Ludo Lefebvre of LA’s Trois Mec serving…
