Toast is a modern intervention within a classic retail storefront in Five Points. Angles and folds keep the kitchen and service volumes confined, revealing more of the beautiful pressed tin ceiling and allowing more of the historic soul of the original building to come through. The strategy also helps light and views penetrate the narrow space. Simple organization insures efficiency and gives this clever culinary couple a perfect stage for their delicious performance.
