OSC was hired to partner with Colorado-based BOSS.architecture to bring Owner/Chef Troy Guard’s vision to life, creating a restaurant that would entice his customer’s tastebuds and eyes with unique menu choices, ingredients, and ambiance. The modern steakhouse, a TAG Restaurant Group’s first venture outside of Denver, Colorado, occupies two-levels totaling over 15,000 square feet in One Allen Center. Overall, the restaurant seats 324 guests, seating 188 in the main dining room, 36 at the full-service bars, and 12 in the private “Board Room”. The second level offers another private dining room that seats an additional 88 patrons. A distinctive aspect of the upstairs space is the option to partition into three private areas, with individual visual/audio capabilities.
A ceiling encompassed with 4,600 fiberglass faux brass rods adds to the ambience of the restaurant, along with the luxury grand metal stairway, three interior bars with black walnut wood, and a two-story temperature-controlled wine cellar with a 16-foot-tall sliding “library ladder.” The wine cellar stores nearly 7,000 bottles of wine and provides wine lockers as an amenity to guests, for the storage of their own bottles. The restaurant’s footprint continues outside with a 4,000 square-foot outdoor patio with two fireplaces, a bar, and beautiful hardscaping.
