19th Century Chic

Like many of what I think of as "19th Century Revival" movements, the so-called "new culinary movement" (of which a great Brooklyn example is here) is a mix of rather expensive 21st Century artisanal craftmanship and steampunk techno-romanticism.

While I love it, I wonder if this is a fad whose wealthy urban audience is disappearing (along with their wealth) or whether it's a new zeitgeist.

Whatever, I'm liking the beards that everyone seems to be wearing these days.
