Taking advantage of the lull after Inauguration, Art and Soul is open once again for business after major renovations. Along with an updated, more stylish outdoor-urban-market-indoors look, Art and Soul’s new menu encourages family-style sharing with exciting Southern fare like deviled eggs and pork rinds, seafood gumbo and bacon corn bread…in a can.
The whole new interior sports rustic wood surfaces, bright light fixtures and lots of different textures, including an entire wall made of beans. Opting out of making the floors out of rice, the designers went with sturdier herringbone wood floors.
Seattle-based Dawson Design Associates was tapped create an urban market ambiance.
The new look includes herringbone wood flooring, textured wall treatments and fresh flowers.
Banquettes were replaced by free-standing tables.
A wall made completely of beans is a playful nod to Art and Soul’s Southern style.
