Client MARC Group Location Knightsbridge, London Completed 2010
Cassis is MARC Restaurants’ Bistro on the Brompton Road, with full interior architecture and design by Tara Bernerd & Partners.
Elegant smoked oak floors, linen walls and mushroom leather banquette seating contrast with the more edgy zinc, which tops the bar running the full length of the right hand side of the restaurant. For a more intimate dining experience, a row of carriage-style seats is set immediately in front of the bar, with mushroom leather seats and Arabascato marble table tops.
A central food counter is fronted with wood set in resin, which adds a playful touch to the space. Towards the rear of the bistro bespoke oak wine cabinets line the wall and an open fire adds a touch of warmth in winter. For warmer days the full height doors at the front draw right back, opening the space to the outside.
