Interior Design: Blue Plate Bar & Grill

October 7, 2010

Attention to detail creates a warm atmosphere in this restuarant by Forward Thinking Design.

In an area that is saturated with restaurants and stylish eating places, the brief for Blue Plate Bar & Grill was to create a shabby chic, North-American style ‘bar and grill’ concept to suit the savvy Neutral Bay dining market.

The project (kitchen area 28.75 sqm and restaurant 111.85 sqm) involved a complete strip-out of the existing restaurant and a refit – incorporating a new kitchen, oyster bar, booths, tables and bench eating areas along with a lounge area and bar.

Food code compliance and theatrical ambience was created by installing a grid of stainless steel tubing from which large cooking pots and bunches of herbs are proudly displayed. The grand chandeliers are a major talking point and the warm and congenial atmosphere of the restaurant has been created with attention to detail of upholstery, flooring, curtaining, lighting and carefully matched colours.

On the street, the timber barn-style doors make a major statement, inviting guests and passers-by alike inside to sample the food and the decor.
