Located within Eddystone Detroit, a historic Italian Renaissance-style landmark, the restaurant came with a distinct architectural style that the designers were eager to honor. With the intention of creating a high-end atmosphere for an Izakaya restaurant that melds with the overall heritage of the building while creating distinct dining experiences, the interior designers leaned on juxtaposition. The contemporary and edgy concept is layered with textures and color schemes that establish a cohesive ambiance. A comfortable lounge allows for a quick cocktail and small plate, while the kitchen counter offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a multicourse chef’s tasting menu while taking in the sights and smells from the Robatayaki grill. Custom-made by local artists, pottery and painted art installations decorate open shelving and a statement screen design accents both the bar and restaurant. To up the drama of this stunning focal piece, the design team consulted lighting experts to create dramatic shadows and ambiance around these screens. With its eclectic charm and bold styles, This restaurant leaves a lasting impression.
