This restaurant located in Rye, New York creates a dining experience combining gourmet food, service and atmosphere. The sequence of the entry, bar, kitchen and public and private dining areas creates a series of layered experiences. The restaurants warm environment is created through the minimal wall surfaces and contrasting wood paneling. Glass enclosed columns throughout the restaurant are individually framed as they engage the ceiling. The kitchen is placed at the center of the restaurant so that kitchen activity may become part of the dining experience through a seamless glass enclosure. A custom designed projection system displays a video art installation consisting of scrolling text that appears intermittently on the dining room wall creating the impression that the diner may be glimpsing bits of conversation captured from around the room.
