KNOWLITA, the design company who brought us the Lower East Side in print form is rolling out a new depiction of the neighborhood. They’ve enlisted Massimo Mongiardo, a Brooklyn-based artist who has worked with the likes of Vans DQM and Momofuku, to draw our attention to food. Literally. The collection of illustrations, called Day In x Day Out, highlights the exterior of favorite downtown eateries, including The Smile, Acme, La Esquina, Cafe Gitane and Cafe Select. And now we want chicken schnitzel and a Bloody Mary.

The Day In x Day Out (D.I.D.O.) capsule collection by KNOWLITA is a celebration of  downtown New York City. It’s where we live, work and play. This is an homage to the place we’re lucky enough to call home.

The limited  prints (50 per design) are 18 x 24, and are $50 a whack.  In addition, they’ve added some limited threads to this collection – tees and sweatshirts – that run from $40 – $70. The folks at KNOWLITA are running a pop-up shop this Saturday, April 26 at 233 Mott Street, where the prints will be shown in the wild for the first time.

More info can be found at Real NYC Market. If you can’t make it over to the pop-up, you can always find the prints and merch here.
