Description: nspired by the ever changing desert landscape, Cabo is a reflection of this beauty. The design concept is to immerse the diner with sights and colors that bring life to the desert. From the tumbleweed chandeliers dancing playfully above the diner’s heads, the large 24” x 24” tumbled travertine flooring that mimics the desert sand floor, to the sunset’s intense amber hues that are captured in the quilted booth back; Cabo sets the mood for everyone’s dining pleasure. The front bar/lounge has a fresh “Spring Day” approach with the introduction of apple green upholstery and the various shades of green in the granite bar top. The dining area lighting level and red, orange, and yellow colors sets the stage for desert sunset. Introduction of warm cherry wood stains in both the millwork and furnishings maintain that comfortable and easy atmosphere.
