The restaurant was designed by Portland architect Kristin Ford with the direction to make it an inviting space that would be a contemporary take on the French bistro tradition: lively, timeless and fun. The bar is an homage to the small cafés of France with its metal topped bar, Provencal cement tile floor, mirrors and antique poster. The restaurant has rich wood floors, warm colors and a tumbled marble dining counter around the exhibition kitchen.
