I was approached initially just to take over the development of the logo, some of which had already been explored. We later opted to expand the project to include menus, the website layout, and secondary collateral like business cards, matchbooks, postcards, signage, and even framed art for the interior. 

The aesthetic is meant to evoke the 1930s and working-class dignity; elegant but proletariat, drawing from stories of depression-era bootstrapping like Mildred Pierce.
