Our designers, Eric Cheong and Loren Daye, transformed a gritty 19th-century SoHo loft into an elegant space for developing recipes, mixing cocktails, and entertaining a new generation of food and drink tastemakers. Hover over each hot spot to see an image of the space.
Every cabinet, drawer and cubby was laid out by Tasting Table’s kitchen team to create an organized work space for a variety of uses--from redeveloping restaurant recipes for the home cook, to preparing hors d’oeuvres for 75 guests.
Once our layout was set, Mystic Scenic Studios custom-built our cabinets using reclaimed oak from Pennsylvania. Daye even culled the specific wood she wanted to use from the lumberyard. Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, CA provided hand-glazed tiles for the appliance wall. Throughout the kitchen, six professional-grade stainless steel Jenn-Air® appliances assure Team Tasting Table that we’ve equipped this space with best-in-class equipment to meet all of our cooking needs.
In this area, we installed a wet bar of dark walnut cabinetry, surrounded by blackened steel and glass shelving and accented with brass hardware. The bar is built around a mid-century credenza from City Foundry in Brooklyn--a handsome home base for crafting cocktails.
THE DINING ROOM
Three long tables with striking walnut tops comfortably seat 30 guests for a meal. Of course, the three-part design also allows us to scale down for 20 or even 10 guests when we’re in the mood for a more intimate event. We designed the chevron-shaped wood pattern to echo the white marble herringbone floor tiles in the kitchen. Mid-century molded plywood chairs are commingled with softer fabric seating from the same era, reupholstered in a mossy green wool.
