Ethan Stowell (left) and Matthew Dillon get the celebrity treatment at Barneys.

As part of the store’s “Have a Foodie Holiday” campaign, late last week Barneys downtown unveiled this window display. Featured are Matt Dillon (Sitka and Spruce, Corson Building) and Ethan Stowell (Anchovies and Olives, Staple and Fancy Mercantile , et al).

Barneys Visual Director Jodi Davis said the local buzz-fetchers make a good fit for the rollout because their “regional farm-to-table sensibility is what people are excited about in food currently,” adding: “Their restaurants are beautiful and accessible.”

A New York artist created the renderings, which, for better or worse, didn’t turn out like that of Mario Batali.
