Matilda Restaurant New York City, NY, U.S.A.

The space main feature is an closet-like cabinet which operates as a sort of container for memorabilia, daily functional needs as well as a unique dining environment. It opens and closes both literally and metaphorically to reveal aspects of the restaurant thematic cuisines (Mexican and Italian.) This large central piece also organizes the space into several areas: bench-tables, private tables, bar, cellar- style dining.
