Located in historical Grand Central Market, Bar Moruno is an upscale casual dining spot that serves flavorful Spanish-inspired cuisine. The eatery selected Howard CDM to transform what was the Market’s help desk into a 650 sq. ft. bar + kitchen.
A ceiling-hung steel shelving unit, weighing over a ton, was installed at the repurposed space to efficiently store items and create a relaxed, industrial feel. The colored glass and decorative perforated metal panels on the shelving unit complements the vibrant dishes the restaurant serves. Custom light fixtures that line the bar put the finishing touches on the trendy construction.
