The restaurant lives in the former Chado Tea Room space, which was completely gutted and redesigned according to Mathers' vision. Some of Chado was repurposed and used in the room, but for the most part its unrecognizable, starting with the living wall and garden patio out front. Inside it's a lot of wood, mid-century looking chairs, a few spurts of earthy green tones. We particularly like the large numbers on the tables, which hopefully means no server can screw up table five's dinner for table four's. Once things get rolling, cocktails come courtesy of a former ink. bartender, and there will be lots of juicing. Plans are to keep the restaurant open for breakfast through late-night, as well as weekend brunch.
