A.R.E. Awards – Restaurant/Casual Dining – Grand Prize

Inspired by Chicago‘s early 20th century mill warehouses, this market-style restaurant is connected to a natural foods market. Visitors are encouraged to explore the 16 kitchens where meals are prepared in a relaxed atmosphere punctuated by vintage artifacts. Vintage industrial meets modern convenience in materials including reclaimed wood, natural stone, quartz, porcelain, terra cotta, glass, and metal.

The market is linked to the restaurant by a juice/coffee bar and pastry station with service provided on both sides. Flexible seating areas can be arranged as an open space for hundreds or portioned to create intimate, private dining rooms. Six large rolling “barn” doors divide the main dining area into three separate dining areas, each featuring its own set of furniture, fabric, flooring, paint, and accents. A full wall of ingredient-filled jars serves as another room divider.
