A.R.E. Awards – Restaurant/Fine Dining – Grand Prize
Located within an outdoor green space framed by the Thompson Hotel, residences, and Victoria Memorial Park, the dining pavilion is an eye-catching extension to the Scarpetta Restaurant. Set within a black, metal, geometric pergola housing a lounge area, the space begs for attention, allowing diners to see and, more importantly, be seen in an open setting that mixes diners with passersby.
A long, white, Corian communal table occupies the dining space, with different levels to allow for a personal space with some whimsy. Chrome furnishings double the quality of the reflecting pool, adding an ethereal light at night.
