Chef & the Butcher is a study of craft. The craft and art of butchery and the slow smoking of quality meats. This idea of craft served as the inspiration for the architecture. 

Located in a long, narrow space off Burlingame Avenue, the volume is split along a central axis, dining and artisan market on the left, butcher counter on the right. The termination of this axis is anchored by a large smoker with it’s flue extending up through the double height space. A butcher block counter invites patrons to sit and become immersed in the experience and craft.

A garden at the rear is framed by a steel trellis which also serves as an enclosure of an exterior equipment yard where customers see staff filling smokers with wood - the aroma of the smoke wafting through the air. 

Project completed at William Duff Architects, Inc.
