Seeking a Kitchen Designer for Manhattan Apt.

My wife and I just bought an apartment on the Upper East Side and while the 3 bedroom was bought for a good price (well, good for Manhattan) the trade off is a small kitchen. The kitchen is about 5.5 x 13.5, which is a bitch, but I rationalized it by thinking that if Gabrielle Hamilton can turn out such good food in her small kitchen at Prune, an amature chef, with no tables to turn can make it work as well.

The issue is obviously to maximize the space, but give it the function of a professional kitchen. To design a small kitchen that has the flow necessary for someone who is going to be using it heavily. Does anyone have the name of a kitchen designer that works in Manhattan that they would recommend?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I'd check the website for the National Kitchen & Bath Assoc. They have listings of people who are accredited designers, plenty of listings in NY! As a former designer, I can't stress enough hiring someone who has taken the time to get professional accreditation.
