Twelve, led by Chef Colin Wyatt, is a farm-to-table restaurant with a rotating menu that spotlights various ingredients sourced from local farms and purveyors, and sets itself apart from others with its commitment to sustainability.
Chef Wyatt’s vision for Twelve extends beyond the culinary experience. He wanted to create a restaurant that feels both modern and timeless—a place that exudes a sense of belonging. “We wanted to have a restaurant that both feels modern and at the same time feels like it has always belonged,” Chef Wyatt explains. “In other words, we wanted a timeless restaurant. We try to do that with everything from the kitchen design, the food, and the decor.”
To bring his vision to life, Chef Wyatt sought a kitchen lineup that aligned with Twelve’s aesthetic and functionality requirements. “We were looking for a customizable lineup that had the looks and the power to support our vision of what we wanted our restaurant to be,” he emphasizes. It was during this search that Twelve discovered Hestan, a brand renowned for its customizable options and exceptional quality.
“Hestan’s equipment gives us the power we need to get our work done,” Chef Wyatt praises. “We are able to use the equipment hard, and with great design points, we are able to clean it easily. It also looks fantastic, and with an open kitchen, this is important. I love the design elements such as the brass accents and the quilted pattern on the handles. I couldn’t imagine another stove in our space.”
Sustainability remains at the core of Twelve’s ethos, and Hestan aligns perfectly with their commitment. By using locally sourced ingredients and compostable takeout containers, Twelve ensures that their environmental impact is minimized while offering the freshest flavors to their patrons. The Hestan kitchen enhances this sustainability-driven approach by providing durability and efficiency, enabling Twelve to operate smoothly while maintaining their green practices.
Twelve was also featured in The New York Time’s 2022 Best Restaurant List, naming it “One of America’s top 50 restaurants” that year. You can check out the article here to learn more.
