NYC’s urban metro treasure, Industry Kitchen, is a beacon of contemporary industrial design form-fitted to the leisurely, modern crowd that crosses its doorstep. Situated on the East River and neighboring the historic South Street Seaport, the eatery offers floor-to-ceiling views of the waterfront and Brooklyn skyline.
The venue is 5,000 square feet of edgy design, with both indoor and outdoor seating so customers can take in the view. With design by ShoP Architects and eco-friendly interior by Wid Chapman Architects, Industry Kitchen takes advantage of the angular structure and streamlined landscape to seamlessly integrate into the vintage industrial seaport vibe.
The venue creates a warm contemporary expression of the area with reclaimed plank wood, black tile, and raw concrete. Seating is available at individual or communal tables, freestanding bar, or outdoor lounge and terrace to create an open and inviting atmosphere.
Warm reclaimed wood pairs with hard-edge blackened steel; hard pairs with soft; and custom-made pendant lighting resembling industrial gears light the dining areas.
Smooth, beautifully patterned oak tabletops made from reclaimed industrial flooring were procured from Olde Good Things, paired with the stunning cast iron New York table legs for the atmospheric warm-industrial feel. The machine legs are embossed with New York, NY, and replicate 19th-century American manufacturing. These sturdy legs are fantastic for reuse in new residential and commercial designs, especially when paired with eco-friendly reclamations.
Industry Kitchen is atmospheric contemporary American dining with flair – offering wood oven grilled meats and pizza, classic entrees, and creative cocktails. The venue has been featured in Gotham Magazine, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Architectural Digest, among others, for the combination of food, drink, and design.
