The Who: Guadalupe Inn / Ivan Garcia & Jorge Boetto
Design: Calabrese Design
The Where: 1 Knickerbocker Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11237
The same team that brought Mesa Coyoacan and Zona Rosa has done it again with Guadalupe Inn. Chef Ivan Garcia has an ambitious menu check out the Gorditas de Chicharrón y Carnitas (corn masa gordita, pork rind, carnitas, pickled cabbage, onions, cilantro, queso fresco, chile de arbol salsa).
In this project Jorge Boetto teamed up with veteran restaurant designer Joseph Calabrese. Joseph spent 10+ years at Avroko Design, marrying incredible food with impeccable atmosphere and space design. Other projects include HIGHLANDS in West Village and MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS in LES.
We helped Jorge and Joseph accomplish their design in the custom made banquette seating. The design included a series of complicated curves, with deep vertical channels, and rift saw oak veneered surround. Paring deep a deep emerald green faux leather and espresso stain the banquettes fill up the space with a warm industrial design cue. We also made the custom wide plank oak table tops to fill the semi-circle banquette spaces.
