Set the home table a la Lutece.

NEW YORK--Lutece, the famed New York-based restaurant featuring French cuisine, has introduced its own tableware collection.

The Lutece line features pieces from foremost fine tabletop and linen manufacturers: Philippe Deshouieres, Schott Zwiesel and Frette. The collection, which is featured at Lutece, will be available at select specialty and department stores in September 1996.

"The Lutece Collection was created as an elegant canvas for the food that we serve at Lutece and we wanted to extend this beauty and sophistication to home entertaining, as well," said chef Eberhard Muller of Lutece.

Muller's fine china choice was Limoges porcelain from Philippe Deshouieres. Designed by Regis Dho, the pattern is set against white or baronial blue rims.

Surrounding each edge is golden lattice reminiscent of Lutece's lattice work and a golden crest, inspired by the ancient emblem of Paris, from which the restaurant takes its name.

A five-piece place setting retails for $180. The line includes serving and gift pieces, as well.

The Lutece Collection of Schott Zwiesel crystal features classically shaped bowls atop slender stems.

The line includes Bordeaux goblets, burgundy, wine, martini, water and champagne glasses and other glassware.

Each glass displays the Lutece name on the base of the stem. The glasses comes gift-boxed and retail at $50 for a four-piece set.

Frette lends its Ramage line to the Lutece collection, which features yellow, ivory and white with flowers and vines over Egyptian cotton jacquard. The Ramage pattern features tablecloths retailing from $425 to $525 and matching napkins and place mats at $50 per place setting.
