Through the short four years of it's existence KZD garnered much acclaim and seven James Beard nominations for the couple. David and Carla continue to practice their craft in and out of Philadelphia, spending a couple of years running a small hotel and restaurant in Thousand Islands, NY and most recently as opening chefs at Cry Baby Pasta. "Carla Gonçalves, whose childhood and family in northern Portugal inform the genuine spirit of this unusual endeavor." Craig Laban 2010 ABOUT THE MAAS BUILDING: The Maas Building, originally built in 1859 as the Charles Maas Brewery, later became a trolley car repair shop for the Girard St trolley line. The building had fallen into disrepair when Ben Riesman and Catherine Birdsall bought the building in 2008 and began to nurse it back to life. The Maas Buildings rehab was designed to incorporate modern ideas into the existing industrial structure, using simple, minimal modern design to highlight the buildings industrial past. Today, the Maas Building is in use as an arts space, cultural entity and event hall for many types of arts activities. With private workspaces as well as public venues, The Maas Dance Studio, The Hi5 Recording Studio, and The 5th Side all call the Maas Building home. All communities are welcome at the MAAS Building.
