JMDA are currently working away behind the scenes on an impressive new Steakhouse concept for local restaurateurs currently operating in York, Harrogate and Beverley. As the project ramps up the team are getting more excited to see the concept come to life in JMDA’s hometown of York. Situated in the heritage area of Sampson Square, JMDA have dug deep in the archives to create a concept driven by heritage, royal jewels and the famous ‘Battle of the Roses’.
Serving Steak and Craft Ales, the restaurant will house 142 guests and will be host to a lavish central bar dressed in rich blue tiles grazed with lighting and topped with an oxidised copper top, serving cocktails, ales and wines. An impressive lighting feature within the bar will showcase the heart of the restaurant. As the circular radius of the bar expands across the space, the dining areas begin to take shape, from intimate mid height two cover tables with timber screen protection, to large party dining booths. A feature stair case constructed in timber and steel will be juxtaposed with an elegant sky lantern, neon signage and brass metal work to the existing brick of the previous retail outlet.
The design will also feature an open kitchen pass which will showcase the chef’s skills and the quality of the products. Sight lines are kept clear throughout the space in order to create ‘food theatre’ seen by all, an element that is key to the brand development.
It’s not only us who are excited about the design, Insider Media Ltd have recently featured JMDA and the proposed scheme in the article below. We can’t wait for a team night out once it’s opened, keep looking on our website for the big reveal!
