Throughout our collection of restaurants, we strive to create interesting, unique interiors. The best way we know how to do this is to step away from current, mass-produced culture and seek out the individual creative spirit as found in original pieces of art.
Aligned with our principles to stay close to our sources (as we do with our food & drink), we collaborate with individual artists from our neighborhoods, across America, and beyond. We take great pride in showcasing their skill and talent.
The work of sculptor Noella Cotnam can be seen in all of our restaurants. Mostly animal sculptures, some are large – like this giant beaver, some are small, all are beloved.
Ronald Jackson helps us tell the stories of the country’s first presidential chefs, the enslaved men and women who ran the kitchens in the White House, Mount Vernon, and Monticello. We pay tribute to these extraordinary individuals for their contributions to our nation’s history and current culinary landscape.
Darla Jackson reminds us of life on the farm with her playful Goat Ladder. She says she always begins with an emotion, something relatable to anyone, and often uses the familiarity of animal forms to bring it to life.
