Located in LA's Grand Central Market, Wexler's stands out with it's bold sense of style; effortlessly mixing classic New York deli with hip LA culture. We love the graphic illustrations applied to the subway tile and the display of bagels and pickles lining the otherwise impeding structural column.

The General Muir

Name: The General Muir
Location: Atlanta, GA
Design: Square Feet Studio; http://www.squarefeetstudio.com

As a modern take on a Jewish deli, the interior of The General Muir looks just as appetizing as the food. With classic details like subway tiles and checkerboard floors, the space feels rooted in tradition while still keeping a firm grasp on the dining pulse.

Keeping the color palate restricted helps keep the interior feeling modern while the bronze details help add a classically aged note. The marble toped bar, vintage inspired bar stools, and globe lights all work together to create layers within the space.

Name: Kiosk
Location: Strasbourg, France

Kiosk was created based on the idea that everyone has a favorite little diner. One that is small and comfortable and makes you want to return time after time. 
With touches of mid century modern, Kiosk puts a fresh spin on the classic concept.

The use of butcher block and blond wood helps balance the small space While the globe pendants and curved lines evoke the classic mid century modern appeal.

Mile End Sandwich & Delicatessen

Name: Mile End Sandwich & Delicatessen
Location: New York

Mile End started out as a local Jewish Deli but has recently added on a sandwich shop crafted with quality design. Playing on the materials already used in the original deli; white tile, blonde wood, and a minimal color palate, the Sandwich Shop incorporates and reimagines them. Giving the spaces a similar and harmonious feel while maintaining separate identities for each. The geometric bling wood table running through the center of the Sandwich shop creates visual interest and traffic flow, while also maximizing seating. Let's take a look;

First, the Sandwich Shop.

And, the Delicatessen.
