Restaurant Confidential – And the name is…
|The owner experimenting with his brick oven chicken|
"Yes, I’m getting hungry too!"
Now that we have the great name, it’s time for us to
conceptualize the setting. The owners
describe their vision in this way,
"We want a neighborhood feel where guests come
to relax and enjoy really good food. Nothing too formal."
I’m a firm believer in a collaborative approach to design and
we have a great team working on FOGATA –
the owners, architect, restaurant manager, and myself.
Each of us brings a specific expertise to the project that will insure
a well functioning, beautiful space in the end.
I found this great exterior shot on line and it became
the inspiration for our team – inviting from the street
with a comfortable interior atmosphere.
After lots of discussion, throwing ideas around,
and general bantering,
we’ve zeroed in on the building concept that will make
THE neighborhood restaurant/bar destination in Chattanooga!

Cheers to that!
Check back next time for a glimpse of the fabulous finishes
I’m working on for the exterior and interior.
