Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post. For those of you who are new to this blog, we take a look at projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of. This post is a special bonus post this week, where we take a look at a new restaurant that is under construction at the moment.
So as you can tell by the photos, this restaurant is a long way away from being open. Let’s get a little background on this spot. This is the old location of food network star Guy Fieri’s restaurant, the 500-seat monster, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square. His restaurant was known as “American comfort food gone wild”. It is unknown why he closed down this spot. Most of the photos are of what his spot used to look like. It is soon going to be knocked down and made completely new and beautiful.
When one door closes, another door opens. At least that’s how the Ellen’s Stardust/Iridium group and the Blue Ribbon group look at this situation. These groups have taken over this spot when it became available and are now making their own restaurant here, with a dance floor too. This is the fourth project that SWA Architecture has been a part of with these groups.
SWA Architecture is responsible for redesigning the space with an interior designer, and are also responsible for the filing for architecture and expediting. We will keep you updated on thie project and be sure to let you know when this opens up. These groups are responsible for The Ribbon restaurants found throughout the city so you know the food will be delicious.
That’s it this week for the SWA Architecture bonus blog post. Take a look at our Instagram to see more projects we have worked on - @swa_architecture
