Azur will show off its classy, ocean-inspired look next Thursday: that's when Frederick de Pue's temple to seafood is scheduled to open to the public. But here's an early look at how the former Cafe Atlantico space has been transformed.
True to its theme, the color scheme has plenty of aquamarine, with muted pink accents as well. The former Minibar location still looks familiar — that small space will now be the home of a raw bar. Bubbles fall from the ceiling, courtesy of an artsy chandelier with 60 different globes incorporated within it. The look comes courtesy of designer Natascha Folens of NF Interiors, who takes advantage of tall ceilings, big windows and exposed pipes to complete the restaurant's look. There's a spiral staircase (the restaurant stretches over three floors). The nautical touches, like Captain's mirrors, are meant to be subtle.
