A Restaurant with a Story to Tell

Memoir transforms dining into a rich narrative. Positioned as an anchor tenant in a new downtown Omaha development, the restaurant welcomes guests with the warmth of a home. Upon entering, patrons are greeted by a dramatic double-sided bar, open-hearth kitchen, and rich furnishings which create a symphony of coziness and energy. The material palette, inspired by the sense of ease one feels in a familiar household, incorporates warm wood tones and deep comforting hues throughout. Original artworks adorn the space, ensuring every corner tells a unique story.

Project Details

Omaha, NE

Scope of Work
Tenant Improvement

Date of Completion  
February 2024

Trim moulding breaks down walls, various patterns reduce monotony, and deep colors create calm, elevating the feeling of intimacy. Oversized arch mirrors reflect light and the activity of the neighborhood outside.

Even bathrooms are transformed into powder-room-like sanctuaries with playful tile, brass fixtures, and full height divider walls as that extra nod to privacy and comfort.
