This new high-end steak house offers a luxurious dining experience for the most discriminating of diners. Inspired by the work of legendary architect Addison Mizner, the restaurant features one main dining room, two private dining rooms, two banquet rooms, a full bar, and outdoor dining, all of which accommodate a total of 230 guests.

Although a franchise, each restaurant is uniquely designed around its location. Constructed beside a luxury marina on the Intracoastal Waterway, the predominate design style is Mediterranean. The Owner’s objectives were three-fold: maximize the seating; create flexibility in the design; and work within the mandated square footage set by the corporate office. The Owner also wanted to appeal to local residents, golfers, vacationers, and businessmen. Banquet rooms of varying sizes were included to accommodate both local and visiting business needs.

The design team created a space that was fresh and appealing to patrons both young and old. The vocabulary features rich African mahogany millwork, intricate iron grill details, elegantly scaled lighting, monumental arched windows, and high ceilings, dominated with heavy wooden beams. A large fireplace in the main dining room was designed to recall the grand-scaled fireplaces of that original era.

State-of-the-art technology systems were designed into the kitchen, bar, and dining areas to enhance food preparation and delivery to the customer.
