Umamicatessen captures the essence of Historic Broadway by infusing existing classical building elements and raw open space with reused natural materials that transform over time. A large open dining hall is surrounded by three kiosks where diners watch chefs concoct their own unique menus creating an interactive marketplace. Seen from the street, a rotating ham tower serves the P!GG concept, vintage wine barrel display overlooks The Cure, and custom light fixtures made from antique milk crates and bottles shines over Spring For Coffee. Designed by SO|DA, Custom reclaimed wood tables, sugar pine timber bar top, and lumber siding from a 1920s rail depot were crafted by District Millworks.
