Top Weekly Projects!

Morini Ristorante

This week we are taking a look at two different projects currently under construction.  We will come back to them once they are complete but we would like to show you where they stand today.  If you liked the other Altamarea group restaurants that we have shown you, get ready for one more.  Located on 1167 Madison Avenue, the soon to be restaurant named Morini Ristorante will be massive.  The photo above shows the outside of Morini Ristorante, obviously not ready to be shown.  It should be coming to life in December. 

The below photo shows the second floor of this gem, which will feature a large dining area with beautiful wood walls.  This place, under SWA and Chef Michael White’s eye, will sure make a splash on the restaurant scene. 

Interior Design of an Apartment

We make a slight gear shift when looking at our second project of the week.  We are looking at an apartment that is under construction.  As you can tell, the rooms are all being put together.  Under the supervision and design of SWA, we combined two apartments into one, creating a masterful layout.  SWA also got the apartment approved and filed.  As you can see the bathrooms are a sheen marble white and will be soon complimented by the rest of the apartment.  That’s all for this week, have a happy Thanksgiving and go see some restaurants that SWA has collaborated with!

Top Weekly Projects!

Back again and better than ever.  This week on the blog we’re doing something a little different.  We are going to run by a lot of places that collaborated with SWA Architecture and show some excellent façade shots.  We will give a brief summary of the restaurant and why you should go there. 

Let’s start off with a sweet little joint called Sweet Revenge that you can see in the picture above.  This joint is located at 63 Carmine Street in Manhattan.  If you are looking for a “sweet” place to get a bite, go there and grab a delicious cup cake. 
Next restaurant we are looking at is Café Blossom.  Located just down the street from Sweet Revenge at 41 Carmine Street.  Can’t find a great place with a great vegan menu?  No longer will you be burdened as Café Blossom has an excellent Vegan Menu.
Our last West Village place is the Victory Garden.  This place offers unique ice cream that cannot be found anywhere else in the city.  Go down the street from Café Blossom to grab some dessert at 31 Carmine street, it won’t disappoint. 
Lastly we look at Mr. Bigg’s Bar and Grill.  Go west to 596 10th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen if you want a fun happy hour and a fun time in general.  Maybe go crazy and go to all these places and make a day of it.  Stay tuned next week as we take a deep dive into an apartment we masterfully designed.
