Chef Gabe Erales, 2021 Top Chef winner opened this Yucatan inspired restaurant mid-2023. The exquisite menu begs for a beautiful atmosphere. Merrill Alley, Principal Designer, and her team at Urbanspace Design Studio took inspiration from their Mexican travels to curate the dining experience. From the hand-selected items in the private dining room to the unique carved art sculptures gracing the walls. Each restroom contains a specially chosen set of themed artifacts bringing the authenticity to every inch of the restaurant. The artfully designed brick walls bring a level of sophistication and warmth to the space. The bar slab was selected to capture a nod to an elevated tortuga style and the stools were custom made. All furniture pieces were carefully considered to allow for multiple seating variations in order for the diners to have a beautiful, yet comfortable seat while enjoying their meal.
