Flagship Commons

An Uncommon Food Hall

The project was designed to be an upscale take on the typical mall food court. Nine different dining concepts, ranging from ramen to kabobs to a full-service bar, each boast their own unique design and are set around a central hall marked with a large fireplace and comfortable lounge seating. Various seating options (high top, traditional tables and banquet seating) allow for flexibility and comfort for group and individual diners. To compliment the high ceilings and add warmth to the space, the team used 16,000 lineal feet of wood reclaimed from Nebraska and Iowa barns to create paneling and tables that were juxtaposed against the more industrial look of subway tile, concrete floors and exposed lighting.

Project Contact

“Flagship Commons was developed in tandem with Westroads Mall officials, so the approach was somewhere in between a traditional mall food court and a food hall designed for gourmand, adventurous eaters.”
Tony Gentile, head chef for Flagship Restaurant Group

The design creates the ideal backdrop for the unique brand identities of each restaurant (including the taco restaurant’s Airstream trailer painted with yellow letters, and the ramen spot’s red penny-tile walls and hanging lantern). Ping pong and foosball tables complete the scene, making the location a groundbreaking fun and fulfilling dining experience for all ages and taste buds.
