“When I picked a placeholder image of a dandelion for the primary, I didn’t realize that it was an ingredient in the chef’s recipes. The interaction with the owners and staff throughout the remodel was fantastic.”
After seven years of successful operation, the owners of Duo, a small farm-to-table bistro, were looking for a facelift. To maintain the minimalist, lived-in aesthetic, the original brick walls, worn wood, and iconic reclaimed windows remained, accentuated by neutralizing the walls in a warm off-white. Large reclaimed mixing bowls were turned into a series of over-sized pendant lights over the main dining area. Powder coated grass-green shelves were added to the kitchen pass, behind, and over the bar to increase storage, organization, and efficiency. A classic dandelion illustration fills the previously underutilized wall in the bar.
