With an abundance of places to dine out in New York, you can only assume that as new restaurants crop up, they are always looking for a unique strategy to attract clientele. Well Mexicue Kitchen and Bar is no exception, first they arrived at an exclusive menu inspired by two of America’s favorite comfort foods: Mexican & BBQ. They took the flavorful tastes of Mexico and blended them with smoky bbq flavors to create a mouthwatering union. Although the food is most important at any dining establishment, the atmosphere and decor has to be top notch to spark the interest of the hungry public who have the choice of 24,000 restaurants at which to dine in New York City alone.
Restaurant designers often shop Olde Good Things looking for the unique unconventional items that will make their restaurant just a little different than the next establishment. Mexicue designers opted to go with a warm, rustic look with an industrial flair and went shopping to find just the look they wanted to accent the reclaimed wooden planks and copper window mirrors used for decorating their Nomad location.
They made a call to Olde Good Things and shopped no further, expected in: corrugated roofing tin from atop a Manhattan building with that rusty look warm enough to complement the pine plank wall covering.
Galvanized tin sheet metal once protected this small mechanical shack a top a Mid-town skyscraper. Now showing weathered wear from years of exposure to the elements, it was time to make way for the new and dispose of the old, rusty metal that once protected the small structure.
Hearing of the salvage opportunity, Olde Good Things was on the scene to remove the sheet metal and give it a chance for re-use.
Mexicue was on the hunt for this very look and when they called OGT they hoped to locate the materials. Well fortunately for them the materials were just in – and the same day it came off, it was delivered to their new 25th and 5th Nomad location just in time to complete the look they wanted.
Come dine and enjoy the comfort food, atmosphere and design of the Nomad Mexicue location. And when you’re looking for just the right look for your next restaurant project, shop Olde Good Things, we just may have what you’re looking for!
