Eventbrite - Holiday Reception on November 8th

The Culinary-Cultural Nexus – NYC at its Best
Permanent Exhibition of Hayko Oriental Carpets at Nanni Restaurant, Issue #2
by Rogier F. van Vlissingen © 2014

 

NEW YORK, October 8th, 2014 – Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries left the East Side three years ago, but returned recently with a permanent exhibit at the famous New York restaurant Nanni. Regularly there will be a new picture of a single Hayko carpet on display at Restaurant Nanni, at 146 East 46th Street, New York, off the corner of Lexington Avenue. It will be a special selection for Nanni patrons.

 

Restaurant Nanni has been a New York Institution for more than 40 years, since its founding 1968 by Luigi Nanni, a native of the Abruzzi region of Italy, offering an innovative fine Italian dining experience, at a time when the dominant experience of Italian food was simplistic, with a heavy reliance on the garlic and oil. Nanni brought Italian cuisine to Manhattan diners. On an average day reservations may come in from all over the tri-state area, and as far away as London, or Texas. With its convenient location, within striking distance of Grand Central Station, it is one of the many New York secrets that seems reserved for those in the know. You would pass it by, unless you knew.

 

Luigi Nanni passed away in 1998, but the Nanni tradition was continued by the current owners, Victorio Miriel and Silvo Sclano, who bought the restaurant from the estate in 2004. Victorio is the public face of Nanni, you’ll meet him when you come in, Silvo runs the kitchen in the best of the Nanni tradition, offering high quality trattoria cooking for discerning New York diners. Once you enter under the non-descript Burgundy red awning that has the name on it, you will pass the coat check and a small area with some tables upstairs, next to the bar and then you go down a few steps to the main dining room, which has picturesque Italian paintings painted directly on the walls. You will usually be greeted by Victorio, who handles the reservations. You will forget you were in Manhattan. It is an enclave of casual elegance that allows you to forget the hustle and bustle of the day.

SHIRVAN 3.6 X 4.11

A picture of this second “Nanni special” of a Hayko Carpet is to be seen on the left wall, right after the telephones. The design is from the Shirvan region of the Caucasus, and it is dated from the 1930’s but the designs go back to the 1880-1890’s. These carpets were produced after the Caucasus came under Soviet control, and they are known as “five year plan” rugs. This particular carpet stands out because it is very colorful, has good wool quality, and its overall design of cruciform and hexagonal patterns.

 

 

Hayk Oltaci, is a master craftsman, and expert in Oriental carpets, and at his showroom/studio in Long Island City (9-20 35th Avenue Space 3D – www.hayko.com) he offers all of sales, cleaning and restoration.

Hayk the owner came promptly and was able to clean the rugs and make repairs to areas that were worn and damaged.

It was a pleasure to deal with him.

Description Of Work:
Washed two oriental rugs — one of which had cat urine on it.  He repaired the other rug which was fraying on the edges.
Member Comments:
I contacted Hayko and he responded to my call right away.  I found him via Angie’s list and saw that he works on very expensive rugs.  Mine aren’t super high quality so I was worried my work might not be up his ally.  But that was not the case.  He gave me a quote on the phone for washing my two rugs that equaled about $500.  I had also contacted another company (who was also reviewed on Angie’s list.  That company claimed that one of my rugs was silk (it is not) and that the one rug alone would cost $700 to clean.  The fact that he was trying to convince me that my one rug needed to be treated extra carefully because it was silk, and the fact that he didn’t even have letterhead to provide me with a quote, made me uncomfortable.  I chose to go with Hayko and so glad I did.  He was respectful, informative, timely and did beautiful work.  One of my rugs needed repair and he offered, without pushing, to do the work of repairing the rug if I so wanted.  I decided to go with it (but just have him repair the sides of the runner rather than take care of the whole thing to save money).  When it was delivered today he informed he had gone ahead and done the ends as well and did not charge me any extra.
I highly recommend Hayko!

We bought a coupon for cleaning an area rug for $120 which I think is a bargain. At first they wanted to charge extra because the rug was a few inches larger than the 4×6 specified in the coupon. Then we settled on $150 which included a minor repair.

Hayko’s Custom Carpets “A Classic gets an Extension”

Hayko’s Custom Carpets

A Classic gets an Extension

Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries has built its reputation on deep know how of oriental rugs. As restorers, and cleaners, and dealers of fine oriental rugs the Hayko expertise is unsurpassed. Hayko also shares his talents with the world through his carpet-weaving workshops. Now a thoroughly modern addition extends the experience of oriental carpet weaving into the modern world through high-end handmade products that are customizable.

Hayko now offers contemporary custom rugs, bringing the skill and craftsmanship of oriental rug weaving ever closer to the customer, giving you the option to either completely custom design your carpets, or to select from a variety of existing classic and modern patterns with color changes to match the scheme of your interior. Through direct collaboration with a Nepalese manufacturing partner, these custom rugs are handcrafted in Nepal using traditional materials and techniques, to provide a completely comparable quality of carpet to your custom designs.

 

This modern extension allows you, as a designer or consumer the flexibility to creatively adapt traditional craftsmanship and integrate it with modern design that suits your need, and at the same time bring individuality to your pieces that was never before available unless you traveled to the source. Precedents do exist, such as the Ziegler Mahal, which was an oriental rug adapted to European tastes. Before 1880 the only exported carpets were mostly local manufacture, that just happened to be exported abroad, but the Ziegler company capitalized on the popularity of the design, but adapted it to the tastes of their clientele, and now they have become classics in their own right.

From now on, Hayko’s patrons have the opportunity to express their tastes and enjoy the outcome in a whole new way!

Cleaned a very dirty 8×10 oriental rug and cut and provided a new rug pad.
Member Comments:
Two weeks ago Hayko arrived at my apartment in Manhattan at the appointed time. He moved the furniture and folded up my 8 x 10 oriental rug. He said it would return it two weeks later.
.
While Hayko had the rug at his shop, I decided to replace the rug pad, which was disintegrating and sticking to the floor. I emailed Hayko to ask if he knew where I could purchase a new high quality pad. He said he could provide one for me. We agreed on a price. Earlier today he returned with the rug and rug pad.
Hayko moved all the furniture and put down the rug on top of the pad.
I was very satisfied with his service. He is very knowledgeable about oriental rugs. I will definitely contact him again in two or three  years when I have the rug cleaned again.

The Culinary-Cultural Nexus – NYC at its Best

A Permanent Exhibition of Hayko Oriental Carpets at Nanni Restaurant
by Rogier F. van Vlissingen © 2014

 

Restaurant Nanni has been a New York Institution for more than 40 years, since its founding 1968 by Luigi Nanni, a native of the Abruzzi region of Italy, offering an innovative fine Italian dining experience, at a time when the dominant experience of Italian food was simplistic, with a heavy reliance on the garlic and oil. Nanni brought Italian cuisine to Manhattan diners. On an average day reservations may come in from all over the tri-state area, and as far away as London, or Texas. With its convenient location, within striking distance of Grand Central Station, it is one of the many New York secrets that seems reserved for those in the know. You would pass it by, unless you knew.

The monthly exhibit of a Hayko’s Carpet will be on the left wall, right after the telephones. Every month there will be one “Nanni Special,” for patrons of the restaurant, and an open invitation to visit The showroom of Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries in Long Island City, for a chance to inspect the rug, which will be exclusive to Nanni patrons during the month of the display.

NEW YORK, July 1st, 2014

 

Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries left the East Side three years ago, but returned today with a permanent exhibit at the famous New York restaurant Nanni. Every month there will be a picture of a single Hayko’s carpet on display at Restaurant Nanni, at 146 East 46th Street, New York,off the corner of Lexington Avenue. It will be a special selection for Nanni patrons.

 

Luigi Nanni passed away in 1998, but the Nanni tradition was continued by the current owners, Victorio Miriel and Silvo Sclano, who bought the restaurant from the estate in 2004. Victorio is the public face of Nanni,you’ll meet him when you come in, Silvo runs the kitchen in the best of the Nanni tradition, offering quality trattoria cooking for discerning New York diners. Once you enter under the non-descript Burgundy red awning that has the name on it, you will pass the coat check and a small area with some tables upstairs, next to the bar and then you go down a few steps to the main dining room, which has Italian paintings painted directly on the walls. When you enter you’ll usually be greeted by Victorio, who handles the reservations. You will forget you were in Manhattan. It is an enclave of casual elegance that allows you to forget the hustle and bustle of the day.

 

Hayk Oltaci, is a master craftsman, and expert in Oriental carpets, and at his showroom/studio in Long Island City (9-20 35thAvenue, Space 3D – www.hayko.com) he offers all of sales, cleaning and restoration. The “Nanni Special” is a circa 100 year old Kurdish rug3.9 by 6feet, with repeated serrated hexagons in red and ivory on a dark blue background. Stylized continuous bird and latchhook designs in red, blue, and green on an ivory primary border. Undulating lines and squares on the light-brownand dark-brown secondary borders.

 

Hayk and Victorio got to know each other when Victorio once bought a small area rug for his apartment at Hayko’s studio. Through the mutual friendship with the writer of this, the idea was born for a permanent exhibition at Nanni. And so, two New York cultural institutions meet in a shared endeavor,which adds an interesting touch to the Restaurant, and extends the presence of Hayko’s carpets to Manhattan.

 

In writing this, I looked up an old review by Mimi Sheraton in the New York Times from 1978, which would be just before the time I first got to know the restaurant, which remains one of my all-time favorites in the city.You can sign up for the email list, to get the announcement for the “Nanni Special” every month, as well as other “Hayko” news, at
