Text description provided by the architects.

A 5,600 square foot fine dining restaurant from Michelin Star chef Eric Bost, located in the noted Melrose Avenue space that once housed the late Michel Richard’s iconic Citrus restaurant.

The existing building was extensively remodeled to accommodate a 105-seat restaurant with an open-concept kitchen. The reconfigured building was conceived to create a seamless transition between inside and out.

The original clerestory defines the entry sequence, balancing old and new interventions. Located outside, the main dining area is protected by a wood ceiling structure. Raised planters evoke rural landscapes and new openings carved into existing walls link the space to the streetscape beyond. A large wall of solid oak windows and doors connects diners to the theatrics of the open kitchen.

A warm natural palette of concrete, stone, wood and plaster creates an effortless, casual space that feels distinctly Californian..
