When Jester Concepts took on the task of reinventing the old Porter & Frye location in the newly renovated Ivy Hotel in downtown Minneapolis, they teamed up with ESG Architects and General Contractor Scott Knuston. The concept of the restaurant was to offer a modern expression of genuine Italian cuisine. In keeping with that theme, when the team came to us for material selections, Italian white marble was the obvious choice. Many marble options were considered, but the final choice was our Calacatta Vagli – a block that had been hand selected by Amsum & Ash’s team directly from Carrara, Italy.  The marble filled the bill impeccably. It provided a stylish and elegant look which was consistent with the concept of the restaurant
