Restaurant. Pacific Grove, CA. 2018
de sola.barnes had the opportunity to collaborate with chef Phil Wojtowicz to transform a previously humdrum restaurant space in Pacific Grove into contemporary restaurant that served up "California Soul Food". Libby and Dani were long time followers of Phil and his team from Big Sur Bakery and were thrilled to be a part of this project. ds.b was able to make major transformations on a minimal budget. Dani created the bold poppy mural and even helped weld the copper tubbing that held the floating shelves together, learning on the side of the road with a local plumber friend. de sola.barnes selected all of the interior finishes and lighting, maintaining the dominant redwood bar top and back bar mirror. We are sad to see the restaurant closed after surviving Covid, but it remains a beloved project.
