Bottega Americano

The developers of this ground-breaking market/restaurant in San Diego came to Schoos Design for help not only with the interior design but also with the branding and marketing of this new concept to the public. Schoos helped develop a new name for the restaurant, designed the logo and other graphic elements and helped refine the look and feel of the venue, which surrounds diners with numerous "food bars" and open kitchens. Unlike anything on the West Coast, Bottega Americano emulates the sumptuous open-air markets of Europe and combines this with the freshness and casual comfort of the California lifestyle.  The interior design also breaks up a large space into appealing, functional spaces, including indoor and outdoor dining, lounge and bar areas, retail and grocery areas and numerous food bars.
