A Mediterranean restaurant in a NoHo historic district building marks chef Bobby Flay’s return to downtown New York. Interiors bear a craftsman’s subtle but unmistakable touch, just like the cuisine.
How can Old World craftsmanship bring food to life?
Guests enter to find original architectural details like vaulted brick ceilings and cast-iron columns accented with industrial lights and custom furnishings.
The host stand is positioned in front of a blue glazed ceramic tile wall.
The lounge features a custom leather sofa and marble-top coffee tables.
Reclaimed materials bear the warm patina of time.
Layers of texture and a subdued palette elevate the dining experience within the restaurant’s three main areas—the lounge, the bar area and the 117-seat main dining room. Handcrafted Mediterranean-style tiles in blue, terracotta, and white unite the spaces.
