Hazelnut co-owner Bryan Batt has won two Screen Actors Guild Awards for his portrayal of Salvatore Romano on AMC's Emmy, Golden Globe and Peabody Award winning dramatic series MAD MEN. A veteran of nine Broadway shows and nine Off-Broadway shows, Bryan has penned a "momoir," "She Ain't Heavy, She's My Mother," which was on New York Times critic Janet Maslin's Top Ten Summer Read List. His design book, "Big, Easy Style," was released in October, 2011.
Born and raised in New Orleans, Bryan divides his time between the Garden Districtand the Upper East Side. This blend of the "Big Apple" and the "Big Easy" has created a cross-pollination of design styles that he brings to Hazelnut, creating its unique sensibility of chic, mixed with old world charm.
Tom Cianfichi began his career in New York as an actor, then a director, and then a casting director before turning his artistic talents to retail. A position in visuals for the Bally of Switzerland Flagship store in New York City opened the door to almost a decade in management, buying and visuals at one of Madison Avenue’s most exclusive gift and home accessories stores. In 2003, Tom and Bryan joined creative forces and founded Hazelnut on historic Magazine Street in New Orleans. Hazelnut has been featured in The New York Times, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest and People Magazine, among other prestigious publications.
