Here are some random photos of interesting material and equipment and lighting choices from restaurants. May help inform material selections, etc. Enjoy!
Cold Line at Crisp on East Blvd. Charlotte, NC
Menu/Line at Crisp
This is the cold box at New York Burger Co. in NYC. Note detail on thin walled stainless boxes, caddies for sauces, packing of ice. This is beautiful.
Artisanal Pickle Co. I have been hearing about...
"The Pass" at Palm Beach Grill in Palm Beach, FL. Note lighting and how focused it is over the Pass...brilliant example of "theater" style spotlighting.
Weathered Painted Brick : Wondering if we can do something like this on exterior brick??
Condiment Bottle at BBilly's : Original Shape is neat, also bottle pourer.
"Hip Flask" style bottled water @ Ace Hotel in NYC: Again, the original shapes interest me.
Inexpensive and clever lighting fixtures made from painted pipe. Ace Hotel, NYC.
Dean and Deluca, Stonecrest, Charlotte. Organized, colorful, and CLEAN:
This is at Lincoln, in NYC. What I liked about this was the lighting INSIDE the hood.
Ace Hotel again...simple, impactful and functional exterior lighting:
Faded Signs, Metrolina.
Old Sign on the side of the Road. Weddington, NC: Hand Painted.
Fresh Fry Station: Penn Station Subs, Matthews, NC:
This is now in my Garage...can we use it somewhere? BTW, it doesn't work.
Times Sq. No place like it on Earth...
