The kitchen

We haven't talked much about the kitchen and I think that is because it's such a small space. It is though,  a very very important part of this restaurant. It is the focal point. The reason for being here. It's where myself and my cook will standing and cooking in site of everyone that walks through our door. The kitchen was already in place when we took over the space. This is one of the reasons why we choose this space. It saved us a lot of money. The hood and gas lines were already good to go, so we just had to remodel it and clean it up. Here are some before and after pictures of the kitchen space. enjoy

The sign

We got the sign up the other day and it looks great. It was designed by a local friend of ours named Paul McKevitt. He did a great job. It was built by signs select.

It was a beautiful day here in Brooklyn and we couldn't have asked for a better day to be outside. We hung the sign and also finished painting and touching up the facade. Just a few small items left like painting the step and the gate covers. Take a look.
