B Too, opening later this month from Chef Bart Vandaele, was designed by architect Ziad Elias Demian and D.C.-based Belgian interior designer Natascha Folens (who also worked on the recently opened Azur). Eater took you inside the two floor restaurant when it was still in the construction phase, and now things are just about ready. There's seating for 175 guests at B Too, which is spread over several areas, including a kitchen bar, two other bars, a waffle and frites bar, private dining areas and more.
Focal points for the restaurant include its Spanish-designed Josper oven (those get up to 900 degrees), reclaimed wood accents, exposed brick and some wacky touches. There are those controversial bathrooms, with pictures of sausages and udders, as well as artwork, cowhides, animal statues and dramatic chandeliers. Vandaele even worked with a ceramic artist, Tinne Debruijine, on the custom-made dishes.
