This downtown restaurant in Toronto is in a historic Beaux Arts building consisting of 7,500sf on two levels and a rear patio. This project was completed by THA team in 6 weeks and a budget of 2.4 million both in construction, millwork, architecture and interior design. From the marble inlaid floors, the galley clad in blue agate, the furniture custom designed, the art chosen/hung in the 19 windows and the overall blue/silver/white/black colour palette this steak house is statement in timeless luxury. There are four main areas: the lower level with a black and white New York Carlyle Hotel atmosphere with mirrored backed wine cases and a private dining room for 20. The upstairs has a bar area in the Frank Sinatra era with back lit onyx and different dining experiences with booths, high-tops and table service with lounge club seats. The galley area has 6 tables for two with their own table lamps and intimate window setting. The main formal dining room has a private room with wall fabric and milk glass Murano chandelier, the remainder of the dining room has an outstanding art collection with custom chairs in leather seating and outside back luxurious patterned fabric.
The design is carried through to the rear patio where you exit the custom metal doors with the oval signature that adorns many aspects of the restaurant including the linens to be greeted by an exterior fireplace and outdoor dining.
