Setting the design standard for all locations, we designed the prototype and first 2941 Street Food with one goal in mind: to create an open, airy, and colorful space that is durable enough to handle the wear and tear of a busy fast-casual restaurant while still packing a heavy dose of good design. Taking our design cues from the coordinates (29N/41E is the longitude and latitude for the Mediterranean and Midwest), we used hard-working materials across a Mediterranean color palette.

The walls and millwork are clad in natural pine planks that allow the Mediterranean tiles in the open kitchen area to take a starring role in the design. Long cafeteria style tables with cobalt painted table legs straight out of a Greek seaside taverna add a jolt of color while the accompanying stationary benches create a perfect solution for the pace and volume of fast-casual dining. Dividing the food line from the dining area is a sprawling community table made of heavy wood and inlaid with tile reminiscent of an al fresco family dinner at a Mediterranean villa.

Centered over the main dining area are large baskets, commonly used to display grains and vegetables in Mediterranean markets, turned upside down for custom light fixtures. In short, it’s slice of the Mediterranean in the heart of the Midwest.
