LOUISVILLE, Ky – Jan. 31, 2023 – 2022 marked the year many people returned to international travel to enjoy some of the world’s top visited destinations and cuisines following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The star of the Osteria will undoubtedly be the Monogram Designer Collection x Richard T. Anuszkiewicz, available now. Created by renowned interior designer and Monogram Creative Director, Richard T.
