As culinary specialists, we are not only focused on the success of the back-of-house, but also on the success of the “overall” customer dining experience. We collaborate with the design team on front-of-house areas as well, via work in planning, programs, circulation, seating capacities, seating mix, and functional integration with back-of-house elements.

With the continued evolution of show kitchens, demo/teaching kitchens, and food halls, we recognize the importance of seamless blending between functional and aesthetic features. Our ability to develop preliminary seating plans can test dining capacities and efficiencies, initiate table mixes, and illustrate opportunities for table flexibility.

Our expertise in F&B millwork and counter detailing may also be of use in front-of-house design. We understand the appropriate dimensions and details necessary for code compliance, ergonomic comfort, and eye-catching aesthetics. We are known for our exceptional collaboration efforts with our design team partners in creating dining and service spaces that exceed our clients’ expectations.
