So we asked Richard Curasco of Royce SignWorks to paint our logo in goldleaf above the doors. Amazing work!
He’s a humble guy and an incredible talent. Water gilded goldleaf the way only the best “old school” sign painters know how. They’re a rare breed and the kind Brooklyn needs to keep alive,
especially for those antique numbers above the transom that could use a little sprucing up, so check him out sometime http://www.roycesignworks.com/.
