Tapped for its expertise in creating bold new restaurant projects such as David Rockefeller’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns, WD-50 and Blue Ribbon in New York City, acclaimed New York architecture from Asfour Guzy has created a contemporary space inspired by the casual elegant landscape of Wine Country. The 90-seat restaurant is broken up into a main dining room, a bar, semi-private dining area and an outdoor courtyard shaded by olive trees.
Large windows look out on to the courtyard and to the vineyard of Napa Valley beyond. Wood floors and ceiling juxtapose white walls that create a strong horizontal space throughout the restaurant. The white walls act as an ever-evolving natural canvas that showcase the colors of the Yountville sky and reflections of changing seasons. The furnishings blend in naturally with the space, with streamlined tables inspired by the sample worktables employed at the Valley’s vineyards, contrasted by contemporary curved chairs with plush seating.
