Again! Another Commercial Grill

They all start the same way. A call comes in from out of the blue, asking whether or not we are interested in doing a custom grill for a restaurant. We love these meaty projects, with lots of requirements to sort through. Functional requirements, esthetic requirements, safety requirements.

Because our grills are manufactured at the largest ornamental iron shop in the Western US, the customers then ask if we can create fixtures for the restaurant that match our grills. We love these projects!

Click on this photo to really get a sense of the beauty of this installation! This installation is installed at Sotto Restaurant in  Cincinnati, OH, and officially opens on 3/25/2013.

The name for this project during design and build was "The Phoenix Project". Two restaurant spaces in Cincinnati stood vacant for years, until Boca Restaurant Group brought those two spaces back from the ashes! That is bistecca alla fiorentina on the far grate and chicken hanging from poultry hooks. Whether Marco Polo brought poultry hooks from China or NorCal Ovenworks simply borrowed these hooks from a Chinese restaurant supply house is up for debate.
