TONY GUTIERREZ

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Cutting his teeth in the kitchens of BiCe, La Strada and Opera, Chef Tony brings all of his Mediterranean influences to roost in the Madison kitchen. A tireless beast, Tony and his team would love to welcome you to enjoy a meal that is the creation of an ongoing exploration.

THE GREAT ROOM

Seats up to 80

Geometric alcoves, rope partitions and a dramatic arched ceiling make up the design of this new restaurant by California studio Archisects.

The restaurant offers an eclectic menu and artisanal cocktails. Archisects a local studio, was focused on two primary goals for the venue – providing "longevity and warmth" through the use of wood and geometric shapes.

Influenced by Japanese modernism and Norwegian design traditions, the firm also aimed to create a distinctive space that stands out in city, which is known for its beaches and warm climate.

The dining zone is defined by a 20-foot-high (six-metre) vaulted ceiling with tongue-and-groove cedar cladding. The room is fitted with wooden chairs and tables and caramel-hued banquettes.

THE BAR

Seats up to 30

Painted light blue and illuminated by nautical-style light fixtures, the street facade is meant to reference Victorian-era storefronts seen throughout the neighboorhood.

Patrons enter into a casual lounge with walls and ceilings sheathed in cedar planks.

Flanking one end of the room is a bar lined in white tiles. On the opposite side are cozy booths separated by angled strands of rope.

A tilt-up door leads to the dining area, which can also be accessed via a wood-lined tunnel on the side of the building.
