So popular in-fact, that patrons dining in its outdoor cafe often impede the sidewalk for casual passer-bys. But changes are in the works to address sidewalk issues as well as expand the restaurants ability to accommodate more customers.
In progress, the current project involves the construction of an outdoor plaza and patio along with improvements to open the interior to the exterior. Materials in use appear to be a blend of engineered concrete, heavy duty steel and designer wood.
The interior of the restaurant has already been opened to the exterior area that wraps the corner of W. Jefferson and S Adams Streets.
Much of the work has already been completed where crews are currently applying the finishing touches to the permanent outdoor canopy which will help the restaurant to provide additional seating and shade for its patrons. The new canopy when completed will not only provide shading during the day but also offer ambient light at night.
The canopy architecture compliments the existing architecture within the Adams Street Commons.
The contractor on record for this project is SouthPointe Builders, Inc, a Tallahassee company, and improvements are on record valued at over $75,000.00
On our recent visit to Iceland and England, that was a very common practice and makes a very nice downtown visiting district. Almost an 18 hour district.
I love this idea!
