New York, NY
Located in the lobby of the Ace Hotel, The Breslin is a new 150-seat restaurant owned by Ken Friedman and Chef April Bloomfield and designed by Roman and Williams. Reclaimed wood flooring – from the fencing from a Pacific Northwest ranch – feels heavy and rustic and contrasts with the milled panels, booths and columns, all of which have been coated in a glossy oil paint in deep browns, greens, and blacks. Large-scale wood paneling and a system of posts and beams evoke a sense of weight and materiality similar to Irish or English pub architecture.
