Construction is still going on and dishes still being perfected, but here’s a sneak peek at all the work that’s been going on in the once-vacant spot near Sur La Table.
Berkeley’s EcoModern Design is transforming the space with earth tones, exposed timber-frame ceilings, cork walls, bamboo counters with brass inlays, hand-forged iron fixtures, and retro lighting fixtures.
One of the coolest features is the divider between the bar and dining room. It’s made of glass panels filled with olive oil. Yes, really.
For a touch of whimsy, you can’t beat the “tomato sauce splotch” on the restaurant’s window. It’s the restaurant’s fun, clever logo.
