Profiling Mark Bee & Silk City
A.D. Amorosi profiles Mark Bee and his latest endeavor, Silk City.
But Bee has turned Silk into a slick sensation that, when it’s dark, glows red from within all the way through the bar and looks like a spaceship from across the street. He’s fashioned new black padded leather doors with portholes for the bar and knuckled chrome fountain taps for the diner’s beers and given chef Dunmire (yanked from N. 3rd) a gorgeous place to braise Thai ribs, broil pork chops (with applesauce) and fashion delish veggie fare: diner food spiked with flare. “And done with love,” says Bee, seriously.
