Nov 04, 2010 Tre Otto

The Upper East Side's Tre Otto offers patrons a high-traffic coffee bar in the morning and an elegant Italian eatery for lunch and dinner. The challenge facing Own entity and collaborators The Design Element Studio INC., was to create a space versatile enough to meet those demands without compromising the client's desire for an elegant, inviting interior. The resulting 40-seat restaurant shifts easily from coffee slinging to fine dining. The cafe area transforms a deli case from a functional piece of equipment into an architectural element that meshes elegantly with its surroundings. Bare brick walls are lit with bronze sconces, and a long set of banquette tables provide perfect seating for the casual caffinator or the serious foodie.
