Meet Restaurant,71-73 Gansevoort Street

Client:
New York City, NY | 2002

The newly renovated restaurant features a café, outdoor dining, lower level storage, preparation area, and walk-in wine cellar. This former meat packing plant was intended to be modeled after the plan of a pork chop, this wee-and-be-seen scene was a ‘public’ inside joke. (As these places general are intended to be.) People inadvertently became runway models as they pace along the public catwalk (the bone of the pork chop) raised high for all to consume visually, on their way to and from the bathroom and public sink. This project garnered much acclaim and press for its interiors. Sadly, it closed recently due to the mercurial whims of its constituency, which it intentionally satirized.
