Appetito I
 

A small, dark space with a wall separating the bar from the dining room has been transformed into a cozy restaurant well into its second decade in Newton, Massachusetts.

Project Overview

The bar now doubles as a dining counter with adjacent take-out area. Corky Binggeli painted the backbar finishes herself. Additional painted finishes and murals by a local artist add color and texture.

A waitstation is hidden behind a mural that bridges the two sides of the space. Banquettes added to the bar side give flexibility to seating arrangements.

A Botero-inspired wall mural brings a softly textured wall to life on the dining side. A handicapped-accessible toilet room is tucked behind a curved wall at the back of the room.
