In the main dining room rising chef Rodrigo Sanchez serves up a master-mix of traditional Thai, Japanese, and Chinese dishes with his own modern twist. Here, the walls, floors, and ceiling of the dining room are covered with thin planks of pine wood and slabs of stone.
The build of the restaurant called for high quality custom furnishings. Cherem commissioned none other than PAUL ROCO, a celebrated Mexican workshop dedicated to the design and manufacture of furniture to create custom designed chairs, banquettes, and tables.
Founders of PAUL ROCO, Rodrigo Berrondo and Pablo Igartúa, were called upon to implement various types of seating throughout the space including banquettes and tables that are sunk into the floor, offering diners an experience similar to that of the traditional Japanese dining style of a tatami room; where people sit upright on the tatami floor mats. With a psuedo-traditional approach, Berrondo and Igartúa designed the seats to appear as though they are placed directly on the floor, but are actually sunken into the floor to keep ample leg room below the table.
