This 10,000 square foot restaurant is located on the ground floor of a new office tower. The space offered 21’ high ceilings allowing us to add a mezzanine and additional 4300 square feet. Our task was to create a modern spin on a traditional steakhouse while still maintaining a high end, luxury feel. The two-story space, offers a warm, inviting mid-century design, juxtaposing the building in which the restaurant resides. We provided a unique entry experience through a wine tunnel with glowing glass floors to connect the valet entrance to the host area.
Upon entering, guests are greeted by a large, oval shaped bar. The bar itself is anchored against a wall of sliding glass doors which fully open to create one inside-outside bar experience. An antiqued white marble top sits beneath your cocktail while the bar die below is playfully lit with interspersed tubes of amber light and leather channels. The sphere-shaped bar lamps, polished brass details and buffalo leather tables all work together to give a mid-century modern design.
The layout of the space is based on a semicircular plan. A perimeter corridor leads guests from the bar into the dining room where they will find a soaring ceiling allowing for a suspended wine room showing off Del Frisco’s prized wine collection. The high-backed leather booths, back painted glass party table and custom pendants all adorn the 100-seat dining room.
A semi-circular wood stair takes guests up to the mezzanine where there is a second bar, a private dining room, a board room as well as dining for couples who want a quieter spot overlooking the dining room. A curved corridor with wood and brass inlay floors, glass railing and mid-century brass sconces connect all the spaces.
