Our guest editor's restaurant standouts in
three of his favorite cities

Guest editor Jason Pomeranc splits his time
between his apartment in New York's SoHo
neighborhood, his house in Los Angeles, and
SIXTY's Nautilus hotel in Miami (the other
SIXTY properties are also in the cities he calls
home). Here's a look at five of Jason's favorite
new neighborhood restaurants in his beloved
locales.

New York
Lilia
For years Missy Robbins toiled away in the
kitchens of notable fine dining restaurants like
A Voce in New York and Spiaggia in Chicago.
At Lilia, her first solo venture in Brooklyn,

New York's Williamsburg neighborhood, she
embraces a homier approach, with guests
experiencing "Italy through my eyes in a
comfortable but elegant setting," she says.
Although Robbins was deeply involved in
the process, the transformation of a 70-yearold auto body repair shop into Lilia was a task
that fell to Brooklyn- and Venice, Californiabased designer Matthew Maddy. Originally, he
recalls, "it was pretty battered. It looked like a
pigeon coop before we started. It was unheated,
uninsulated, full of dissembled cars, defunct
machinery, and a thick coat of engine oil."
Maddy and his team brightened the garage
space with a palette of gray and an abundance
of wood, painstakingly working on all elements
from millwork to ceiling finishes by hand.
He also maximized the "incredible cathedrallike light" filling Lilia. Rather than reflect
it, everything inside appears to absorb this
lustrous sheen, conjuring an atmosphere that
is "muted and undemonstrative," he says. "We

were striving to create the backbeat."
One such restrained example is the
continuous light fixture traveling along the wall,
up and over the windows, across the banquettes,
and over the doors. Fashioned from a thin, matte
black line of 3/4-inch steel tubing, its aesthetic
function, Maddy points out, is more valuable
than its practical one: "Crossing the pale,
plastered brick walls, we thought it would be as
subtle as a single graphite pencil line on a fresh
sheet of drawing paper."
More striking is the "prominent but not
overwhelming" 60-foot-long, bleached white oak
partition that unites the front and back of house
and doubles as shelving and storage. Dividing
the kitchen and dining areas, it also maintains a
dialogue between them. "One driving desire of
Lilia was to keep the room as open as possible,"
explains Maddy. "To have Missy in the thick
of it."
