Saks Fifth Avenue has been one of the city's preeminent high-end department stores since it opened in 1924. The ten-floor luxury behemoth buzzes with a well-heeled hum at the ground level, where cosmetics salespeople stand at attention and perfume spritzers beckon at every turn.
We provided professional consulting engineering services for the project. The project included renovation of the Saks 5th Avenue restaurant on the 8th floor of the Saks building in New York City. The space was planned to be a full service high end restaurant and bar serving lunch and dinner with seating for approximately 203 people, consisting of a bar, lounge, dining area, private dining area and minor modifications to an existing kitchen totaling 4,000 ft2 FOH and 1,000 ft2 BOH. HVAC was modified for new walls and ceiling heights, electrical was modified for bar and service area, new wall locations and new FOH lighting
Whether it’s the smell of the locale’s perfectly marinated and sizzling Porterhouse, the intimate ambience of its Brazilian cherry wood floors and alabaster chandeliers, or the welcoming demeanor of the General Manager, those who dine at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse know it will be an unforgettable experience from the very beginning.
Based on the original restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia, 22-13 is a high-end, vintage-styled restaurant whose charm is based on its mismatched chairs and intimate corners.
