“Dave was great to work with on this remodel. His one stop shop approach made the process easy for us- from design and planning through construction management. The details were delivered and goals were achieved with minimal involvement on our end. I was confident in trusting his experience on many of the design and detail decisions. The result was a unique, vibrant space with a great appeal to a broad demographic. We look forward to working with him again.”

Juan Padro
Culinary Creative, Tap & Burger Concepts

Modern Middle Eastern food has made a big hit on the foodie scene. The primary client, Juan Padro of Tap and Burger Concepts, had a vision for an upbeat, fun environment inspired by the culture of Tel Aviv. We gathered aspects of Bauhaus design, ethnic patterns and lighting, complimented with modern fixtures from Tom Dixon. The client wanted to create separation with the wide open space, which we achieved with rough cedar pergolas inspired by the gathering aspects of a traditional Chuppah.  Classic materials of the region include a travertine bar top and backdrop wall, and arabesque mosaic tile adorning the wood fire oven which produces fresh pita bread and roasted vegetables. Kilim rugs and succulents soften the space, creating an inviting environment to present the food by Chef Daniel Asher. Additional partners include Ben Higgins from the Bachelor and the Dining Out Magazine team.
