To fit the vision of renowned Chef Voung Loc, who imagined a warm, welcoming bistro, we exposed the rich wood structure in this former retail space, incorporated a brass bar and discrete lighting, and made the wood-fired grill a focal point. Original steel-sash windows, along with tables and benches from recycled wood, contribute to the visual palette—as do the framed mirrors and fanciful wallpaper. It’s an environment that perfectly complements the rustic yet elegant dining experience, which features French-inspired meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes.
