Del Frisco’s Philadelphia – Successfully Using Space To Its Potential

Filling a restaurant in such an immense space can be quite a challenge. It is difficult to make it appear full when there are so many spaces to sit and have such a high ceiling to work with. Del Frisco’s in Philadelphia successfully uses there space to its potential. The grand building contains rich material and color, and has a swooping bar on the main level, with a wine rack which protrudes to the second floor and holds over 2,000 wine bottles, and is used as the restaurants focal point. It contrasts nicely with the marble columns that are not only the structure of the building, but a grand feature that makes the space feel important. The second staircase races up to the upper floor and ends at another bar which overlooks the entire space, another successful design element. I love old buildings that are still utilized today that make such an impact on the success of the business. Not forgetting to mention there delicious cocktails, Del Frisco’s is a great place to wine and dine.
