Originally the grand dining room of a 1912 hotel, this restaurant space had undergone numerous renovations, covering up original details like marble mosaic floors and oak paneling. When a new owner came in with the concept of creating a modern bistro with a historic flavor, we took a set of initial layouts and detailed the 5,900 square foot space, restoring it to its former grandeur.

A new entry vestibule allows ADA access from the Temple Street Alley next to the Shubert Theatre. A new stair, new bathrooms and a private meeting area are tucked into the back areas of the ground floor, to allow for an open central space. A bar area with booths, a mix of seating types in the dining area and a café/dessert bar complete the ground floor. The mezzanine’s mix of lounge and table seating allows for flexibility in its uses. Behind the scenes, two modernized kitchens bring sophisticated cuisine to food lovers of New Haven and beyond.
