Project Spotlight: Not Your Average Joe’s
September 1, 2015
In a space once hailed as a food cornerstone of the neighborhood, Streetsense worked alongside Not Your Average Joe’s (NYAJ) to open their most recent location of unique neighborhood eateries. Owner Steve Silverstein wished to enhance the successful relaxed suburban environment of NYAJ with an urban industrial feel to create a space that allows visitors feel welcome without having to dress up.
Split into two levels, the “California industrial” style restaurant is wrapped in white brick with spontaneous color flairs to accent the furniture and building. The focal point of the bar is flanked by 20 foot high shelving, four large TVs, and colorful high-top furniture. The red colored steel connects all of the dining areas to the main stage of the red kitchen proscenium where diners have a front seat view to a large metal wrapped pizza oven, open kitchen, and marble bread table. In a new addition to the space, patrons may also dine in the ‘garden dining’ area surrounded on 3 sides by glazing lit by 96 strung bulbs in a starlight pattern.
Through the revised building façade and new entrance tower, diners can enjoy fantastic, moderately priced food in an exciting yet comfortable atmosphere that is soon to become a staple of the community.
