Another new addition to New York is Colonie restaurant in the beautiful Brooklyn Heights neighbourhood.
Architect Alex Meyers of MADesign is responsible for the interior that effortlessly marries old and new. The interior is largely composed of recycled and reclaimed materials, mixed with contemporary pieces. Floors, ceilings and tabletops are made of reclaimed wood and the lovely banquettes are in fact reworked church pews.
The live wall brings a splash of colour and serves as a vertical herb garden of sorts.
The open kitchen is one of the best parts of this fresh new restaurant. Diners can watch their food be prepared in front of a subway tiled backdrop, between stacks of pots, pans and plates.
Another interesting element is the chandelier made up of an I-beam the owners found on the roof of the building.
The large antiqued mirror above the bar is encased in a beautiful wooden frame salvaged from the famous Toy Building.
