Project Narrative

Raf’s, a new European-style dining room and bakery at 290 Elizabeth Street in New York City. The restaurant is founded by the James Beard-nominated team behind the Michelin-starred, The Musket Room. Post Company transformed this century-old building on Elizabeth Street into a contemporary destination with multi-use dining spaces that engage the storefront’s storied past and exhibit the sensibility and style of a European café society. Our design celebrates the legacy of a European haunt with a healthy dose of bold formality– a contradiction that’s particularly New York. The eclectic mix of modern forms and vintage elements of the material palette create a versatile day-to-night destination that’s elegant and relaxed, intimate and grand.
