Tennant Improvement Project | Midtown – Tampa, FL | 6,600 SQ FT | Completed in 2022
EMPAD Architecture was entrusted to create a space in Midtown Tampa that not only serves to reflect the modern,
state-of-the-art, culinary dishes that Chef Chris Ponte is set to create, but that is also highly functional for efficient
restaurant operation. To achieve this, we incorporated numerous key design features, including strong visual
connections throughout the entire restaurant, a full-height glass wall for patrons to view the culinary art in creation,
and a large bar area including a 15’ tall, all-glass wine storage room, which separates the bar and dining areas.
Moreover, the bar area has numerous euro-wall door systems that give it the ability to open up completely to the
large, covered, outdoor seating area, while the dining area itself is filled with high-end finishes and unique lighting
along with the signature Chef Ponte elements, like the long, linear banquet seating and the rounded booths along
the exterior walls.
