San Francisco, CA
After successfully collaborating on several restaurants, The Dajani Group again approached Arcsine to help develop a new sushi bar in the emerging Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. The clients sought to keep the kitchen as small as possible in order to maximize dining capacity while creating a cuisine-inspired presence to compliment the dining experience.
Coordinating with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency to ensure neighborhood redevelopment goals were met, Arcsine planned a layout adeptly responding to a variety of challenging existing conditions. Concrete columns and shear walls were creatively transformed into
bottle displays and spatial separations. A variety of seating options were developed including a central communal table, banquettes adjacent to the fully glazed storefront windows, sushi prep bar seating, and an intimate private dining room.
