Since last decade, restaurant scene developed very quickly in “brotherly love” city! Philadelphia’s hottest new restaurants have plenty of variety, from French to Japanese to Modern American. No matter what your taste, Restaurant Interior Design offers a “Where to dine in Philadelphia” guide!
The dining room design area is smartly furnished with bright yellow and black geometric floor tiles, tufted leather topped bar-stools, dramatic yellow drapes and strategically placed oblong mirrors along the walls for people watching. To further reinforce restaurant interior design concept, Stokes Architecture studio created a friendly welcoming space with colorful handmade Mexican tiles, bright blue Stellar Works chairs, and backlit mirrors, surround a central bar area.
Give into the urge to order everything on the menu, beginning with rosemary-scented Marcona almonds and roasted fennel with garlic salsa verde, and graduating to mushroom and ricotta toast with black garlic and cured egg yolk, ending with an olive oil cake nuzzling honey draped nectarines.
Walnut Street Café
Located on the ground floor of Pelli Clarke Pelli’s FMC Tower, Walnut Street Café is the first foray by BDP Hospitality (Pearl & Ash, and Rebelle) outside Manhattan. Local architects BLT and New York-based Parts and Labor Design were tapped to dress the high-ceilinged space with penny tiles and green terrazzo, anchoring the whole with a walnut and brass staircase, and a towering travertine bar.
The all-day diner segues smoothly from a breakfast repertoire of black sesame kouignoù-amann and cheddar chive scones, to lunchtime offerings of zucchini soup and fried blossoms, and pulled pork sandwiches, ending, triumphantly, with a dinner spread of bucatini with raisins and pine nuts, and black bass with beans and mint.
Wm Mulherin’s Sons
The surprises at this three-storey, 19th-century whiskey factory in Fishtown begin with the fact that it’s been converted into a ground-floor restaurant and two-story boutique hotel. At the restaurant, Stokes Architecture studio along with Method Co. have complemented the building’s original wood-paneled walls and terracotta windows with customized millwork and metalwork alongside ceramic sconces and a hand-painted mural by visual artist Stacey Rozich.
In the kitchen, chef Chris Painter presides over a trio of bar and two dining rooms areas, one of which features an open wood-fired oven and grill on which hanger steaks and colatura pork ribs kick-start an evening fuelled with craft beer and small-batch wines.
Cheu Noodle Bar and Bing Bing Dim Sum
There’s an almost psychedelic pop-art quality about Rohe Creative’s interiors work on this Fishtown restaurant, the quotidian strawmat-like benches and foldaway chairs suddenly giving way to giant murals of four-eyed octopus, and bathrooms that look like Keith Haring had stopped by.
But for its owners Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh, it’s the perfect backdrop for their growing empire of funky Far East cuisine. The DNA of the menu is perfectly authentic, but it sometimes feels as if the Mad Hatter is manning the kitchen.
