Chef Vikas Khanna worked with us to transform a run-down commercial space in Chelsea into a formal Indian restaurant. We toured some of NYC’s finest restaurants with Vikas. During Schematic Design, he stressed the collective dining experience.
This restaurant project focused on one large formal Dining Room which was an interior space between the separate bar/entry and a new full kitchen. There was also a prep kitchen, storage areas and an office in the basement. A screened entrance helped define the plan and an oversized diffuse light and scrim feature hovered above a sea of tables. We led this project through to permit approval and a negotiated contract.
