Anchoring a multimillion-dollar mixed use development, this 14,000 square foot casual restaurant evokes a warehouse-chic vibe and as the first completely new, ground up concept from this brand sets the stage for future growth and establishes the design vocabulary new locations will follow. Through the unique use of common materials and elements - salvaged wood timbers are used for stair treads, wide flange steel beams become bar foot rests, reclaimed barnwood is transformed into a featured lighting element, walk-in kitchen coolers are found in the dining room - a distinct design brand emerges setting this eatery apart from others. All these elements along with massive two story steel windows and an open floor plan add to the industrial-styled atmosphere.

The two brick-clad wood-fired pizza ovens are prominently located in the heart of the restaurant and an open kitchen allows patrons unobstructed views of the chefs crafting the restaurant’s New American fare. A chefs table with a window looking into the kitchen prep area is bordered by two walk-in coolers. Floating ‘box’ booths cantilevered from the second floor above the entry lobby allow guests to peer down on the happenings below. These and other creative dining spaces such as a bar that opens up to an exterior patio and a private dining room with a barrel vault ceiling supported on curved glulam beams give diners the opportunity to experience the restaurant from a different vantage point each time they visit.
