We told you the Meatball Shop guys were everywhere, and now Shop co-owner Michael Chernow is taking a page from the David Chang playbook and modeling. (We hadn’t realized free suits was one potential perk of owning a single-serving restaurant.) In fact, he’s on the cover of a new J.Crew catalogue, and he’s on J.Crew’s website, talking up his love of suits, vintage boots, and meat grinders. In fact, he’s not the only restaurateur that J.Crew recruited for this campaign. Tea & Sympathy owner Sean Kavanagh-Dowsett is featured, too.
