ABOUT SWIFTY’S RESTAURANT:

Chef Attoe and co-owner Robert Caravaggi, former chef and maître d' respectively of legendary Upper East Side boîte, Mortimer’s, combine classic and straight-forward, American and European cuisine with friendly and impeccable service.

ABOUT BARRY SEIDMAN:
After years of being the invisible American influence behind companies such as Pernod Ricard, Coca-Cola and Nabisco, Barry Seidman has turned his creative lens towards fine art photography. Seidman exhibits his fine art photography in numerous, one-man, fine art shows in New York City and South Florida and is collected internationally. His Feast for the Eyes photographic series, which was recently debuted at the Gallery at Fotocare in Chelsea dazzled photography enthusiasts as well as food world luminaries. The series was inspired by the fresh fruits and vegetables he found visiting local greenmarkets where he studied the voluptuous shapes, pure colors and beautiful textures of the produce.
