Have you ever been to a restaurant where the interiors just blow you away? Where the decor is as delicious, or even more so, than the food itself? My intern Colette was in New York this past week, and we met up and were in love with the interiors at David Burke’s Fishtail. The unique bilevel restaurant is located in a historic townhouse on the Upper East Side, and still retains a homey feel. Although Colette and I very much enjoyed the food, it was the creativity and attention to detail that really got her excited- I took my cue from her as the restaurant was her choice. Take a look at some of the pictures of Fishtail…it’s just fabulous! I love the red lacquered walls and the various fish and oceanic references throughout. And the abundance of interesting light fixtures! Just fabulous.
Are there any restaurants whose interiors make you salivate?
Isn’t this a great grouping of paintings? So fun and lively! Such an interesting blend of classic and whimsy throughout the restaurant.
What a light fixture! Complete with the concave silver papered dome.
This was the light fixture above the stairs. Anchors? Bubbles? Balloons? Buoys? Whatever it is, I love it!
Isn’t this wall so amazing? So simple and so sleek, but this white textured wall is anything but boring!
The private seating alcove where dinner was mauled!
Of course had to include at least one picture of the food. No, this is not a hamburger. This is a cookie s’more! Can you spot the cookie, chocolate and marshmallow in this picture? Oh yes, and complete with a scoop of banana ice cream! Worth another peek…or definitely a taste. Head on over NYC MG readers! Us Chicago gals will be baaack.
