Auriga Restaurant Minneapolis, Minnesota

A two-phase master plan was created to revitalize this restaurant in both function and appearance.  The first phase reconfigured existing dining spaces to add a chef’s table while accommodating diners more comfortably.  Interior finishes and lighting were refashioned to create an upscale but comfortable dining atmosphere.  The second phase reconfigured an existing bar and office area to create a new larger bar, waiting area, accessible toilet rooms and additional dining area while necessitating only minor changes to the kitchen area.
