Story by Rory Winston | Photography by Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images What’s in a name? Be it Montague or Capulet, it’s unlikely that either side would question the sweet smell of a successful Tisch.

Ciano_FEB14

By Rory Winston Shortly after Flatiron’s Ciano closed, the genius of a restaurateur, Stratis Morfogen, insouciantly announced, “Well, I’m going back to Italian-American” – this after realizing that his renowned purist of a chef, Shea Gallante, was taking himself out of the picture.

TolacheThompson_FEB14

Delmonicos_JAN14
