The Kings of Food?

sroberts209 | Oct 7, 2007 09:52 PM

Hi There,

I'm an illustration student doing a series of paintings depicting the "Kings and Queens" of traditional food in NYC. Basically, people who still make food on-site, by hand, in traditional ways.

So far i'm painting Sikorski (the Polish butcher shop in Greenpoint), Roccos (hand-piped canolli in Greenwich Village). I was thinking Guss' Pickles ? Junior's Cheescake?

The thing is, the person needs to be alive, so I can go and talk with them, and take their picture (the King or Queen who I will paint ) ... so Juniors Cheescake may not work .. is there still a "Junior?"

I need some more. Any suggestions? A Bagel King, a Bread Queen ?
