The long narrow restaurant can seat 40 in an array of different seating options. Banquette seating lines the 16-foot-tall brick walls, while an I-beam spans the sloping floor to accommodate a large communal table. A perforated steel staircase leads to the mezzanine where bar seating overlooks the restaurant from above. The constricted entryway inspired the design of side-by-side bench seating with swivel café tables fixed to the wall.

The simple material palette is comprised of ash wood, powder coated steel, brown leather, and terracotta - inspired by the tiled roofscapes of Lebanon. Handcrafted terracotta pendants line the length of the restaurant.
