What I love most about this space is the materials. Nopi considers itself a brasserie, but you might not see it right away. The traditional materials found in a brasserie; marble, wood & brass are introduced in a completely new way. This play is what makes the entire space successful. Although the materials have been used in a slightly more contemporary and upscale manner, the space retains a comfortable and familiar vibe. The downstairs uses many of the same materials as the upstairs but feels as though you are eating right in the kitchen. Shelves filled with storage for the kitchen, line the dining room walls and traditional subway tile is intruded in a grander scale. Tables also change and help represent the more communal nature of the downstairs.
