With the success of their first Hawaiian restaurant the owners of Sam Choy’s (Honolulu) decided to look at main land locations to expand their brand. NRD worked with the owner to design and engineer the remodel of an existing Golden Corral in Colorado Springs, CO into a new Sam Choy’s location. This restaurant was to be a destination for private events, gatherings, and fine dining. We designed an extensive wine display, custom bar, lounge, aquarium, and lanai style outdoor dining. The use of a subtle tropical palette, textiles, and natural woods brought this project together.
