Vilage of Merrick Park, 320 San Lorenzo Ave. | Coral Gables, FL 33146
Interior and exterior build of an existing anchor restaurant in the internationally renowned Merrick Park retail center in Coral Gables, Florida. Project was built with three separate permits and three phases to meet a tight grand opening deadline for the 147-seat indoor/outdoor Parisian-style bistro. Dominion Builders worked with the design team to conceptualize and deliver a streamlined commercial kitchen with food service equipment and walk-in coolers for improved staff traffic flow leveraging uniform construction coordination. Salvaged reclaimed barn wood was sourced locally by Dominion Builders to create two expansive rustic-style bars. Intricate cement tile floor was hand laid as a design focal point of the dining room floor. Operable folding windows were engineered to facilitate an indoor/outdoor bar. Night shift hours required for most of the exterior plumbing, lush new landscaping and brick paver renovations, which entailed deep coral rock penetrations to create an outside oasis with trickling fountains and lush courtyard landscaping.
