The Grove Wine Bar and Kitchen was designed with the restauranteurs’ most basic intentions in mind: good friends, good food and good wine. The budget conscious project’s design draws upon a natural setting to create a casual neighborhood hangout. At one end of the space a large wine display acts as a bookend for activity. At the other end a deck seats the restaurants visitors beneath a grove of live oaks. Between these elements a contemporary bar and adaptable dining space provide an unobstructed connection that allows visitors to experience all aspects of the space whether inside or out.
