When my partners and I are on call for a project, we always come on site to the restaurant to taste the food and assess the location. Aside from evaluating the food, we take careful attention to the ambiance and décor of the restaurant. In short, the design and décor must be appropriately matched to the theme of the restaurant and provide an inviting, enjoyable and not to mention clean atmosphere.
Every so often, I visit a restaurant that is so beautiful that it leaves a mark in my mind even after I leave. Taps Fish House and Brewery in Brea, California did just that. Upon entering the establishment, I immediately felt a warmness—not just from the cordial service but from the dark brown wood furnishings, exposed brick walls, old-fashioned stools and wall fixtures.
At Taps, you can experience both classy fine dining on one end at the elegant main room, and casual eating and drinking at the bar on the other. Cigar enthusiast? Light one up at Taps cigar-friendly patio. On a chilly night at Taps, try cozying up to one of four fireplaces to some live music. Taps is a wonderful example of great restaurant design. Our very own consultant at Synergy, Bob Kuchinski, actually designed Taps.
