This is the site for the research and development of the dishes that will one day be on The Press Club menu. It’s a dream factory, a laboratory and a test kitchen. Taking these cues, and an equipment list that sounded more Breaking Bad than MasterChef, we designed a space in which experiments would occur.
Speaking of clayware we hung a few pots from the ceiling, too - 3874 of them to be precise. The effect is of a sweeping vault, lifting around windows and doors, falling where it can and creating an immersive, warm environment for dining. The pots, of 3 different sizes, are packed to allow lights and services to either dropthrough the porous vault or be hidden behind.
