Daniel Boulud DB Bistro Moderne
Created for Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud, this project includes the white-tablecloth French restaurant Lumiere and more casual DB Bistro Moderne. The latter particularly exhibits a deft touch with materials, tones and textures, its inviting atmosphere putting a unique modern spin on the classic Parisian bistro. The bar area features herringbone travertine flooring, a zinc bar top and, behind the bar, woven, polished stainless-steel surfaces framed in red eel skin. Custom handcrafted glass pendants, based on a 1960s Italian design, illuminate the space. Beyond a screen of saw-tooth-textured bronze glass, rolled-steel channeled fixtures illuminate the dining room, where custom-designed distressed oak-and-ox blood leather chairs complement banquets in chocolate-brown- and copper-colored woven leather. A private dining-and-wine room presents oil-quenched-steel wine racks and a wall covered in rich red- and brown-leather tiles.
