Imperial it is… The Mondrian Hotel in Soho recently opened a sustainable seafood restaurant called Imperial no. 9 and it looks fabulous! At first glance, it is hard to see anything other than the fully glass ceiling of the expansive space, but let your eyes wander down and you’ll notice all the amazing greenery, those striking blue chairs, and the dramatic chandeliers.

The space was designed by Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, a designer whose residential work I also love to pour over. Do you love it?

Stunning views from the street at sure to lure in a crowd!

Ummmm – have I mentioned how much I love apothecary jars? Love them.

Crystal chandeliers sparkle in both the abundant natural light by day, and the beautiful spot lighting by night. These are just the perfect accent to all of the lush greenery.

The whole place makes me feel like a luxury fern gully fairytale. How does it make you feel?  Do you like it?

Have a WONDERFUL Thursday!
