Design Approach: The restaurant's layout is the result of the owner's
directive to provide for a distinct sense of arrival in a lounge-like
foyer. When guests approach the bar, a dramatic forced perspective and
converging axial view of the restaurant's main drive-aisle is revealed.
Three equally divided dining rooms bring the scale of the space a degree
of intimacy set amongst grandeur. The lighting has gone beyond function
and the fixtures are instead the jewelry and sparkle of the room.
