The Roman and Williams Guild

Robin Standefer and husband Stephen Alesch, owners of renowned design firm Roman and Williams, have partnered with James Beard-award-winning restauranteur Stephen Starr to open the Roman and Williams Guild at 53 Howard Street last month. The Starr bakery and restaurant Le Mercerie is located within the Guild retail store, which showcases Roman and Williams furniture and other designs. This is a continuation of their long collaboration, as Roman and Williams designed Starr’s Upland and Le Coucou restaurants, and other notable restaurants and hotels in New York. The kitchen at Le Mercerie will be run by Marie-Aude Rose, a celebrated Parisian chef. Bernstein Redo, P.C. is proud to be a part of the Roman and Williams Guild and Le Mercerie team.
