A blue upholstered banquette, radiating orb chandeliers, and spherical glass pendant light fixtures allude to the establishment’s artfully displayed selection of internationally sourced bottled waters. The interplay between dark and light, polished and raw, and additive and subtractive surfaces . The open kitchen with counter-top seating allows patrons to enjoy the careful preparation and sophisticated plating of the bistro’s fresh, eco-conscious, and whimsically-named dishes. The boulevard facing drink rail provides diners with a dynamic view overlooking the restaurant’s outdoor patio and adjacent streetscape.
