As a second location for the concept, Piattino, Summit needed to have a casual yet urban sensibility while still relating to the Mendham location. For the exterior, having no ability for a traditional vestibule, the team created a canvas entry enclosure complete with taxi light typical of Manhattan eateries. On the interior, key finishes and materials such as calcutta marble, tumbled marble mosaic flooring, iron ring chandeliers and custom photo collage murals were repeated from the original. The team then added colorful glazed brick on all the lower walls, stained all the beams and woodwork in a driftwood grey and created a open kitchen. Having a larger bar area allowed for the incorporation of a chilled wine dispenser and walk-in wine cooler. Using a varied mix of seating the space allowed for a more versatile customer mix. Whether you're meeting friends after work, or hosting a function in the private dining room, Piattino has the perfect setting.
