Donna's is an Italian restaurant opened in late 2016 by Heather LaVine and Vic Christopher of Clark House Hospitality in Troy, New York. Donna's is in the former home of Troy establishment Minissalle's. Heather and Vic bought the restaurant from the Minnissale family and decided to name their new venture after the matriarch of the family, Donna. Growing up in a strong Italian-American family, I feel most at home in old school red sauce joints, and so I was beyond thrilled to create a fun and bold word mark and menu design for this project. I look forward to many days of drinking Chianti and twirling a bowl of spaghetti at Donna's.
