Bringing the inside out
The swinging window allows for an indoor/outdoor dining space with stools on either side of the windowsill-inspired counter. A common talking point for those sitting outside looking in: the green tractor seats. The potting shed theme carries through to the interior with wood paneling, garden tiles, wicker chairs, potted plants and found objects such as garden trinkets and garden-theme photos.
Some of the more senior members of the team smile at the junior staff who are excited to uncover an interesting trend in “eatertainment” or the latest single-ingredient concept. We try not to be condescending when we suggest they do some research by looking at past issues of Restaurant Business or old Technomic top chain reports before calling it the next big thing.
