Can a simple café combine a classic Italian feel with an owners modern taste and edgy attitude? This is the challenge presented to us by Crespella restaurant consultant Justin Durazzo.
The star of the Crespella's is a mural that features a slew of Italian expression. The phrases range from food descriptors, to playfully placed curse words, with some classic proverbial sayings, and just the right amount of neighborhood pride mixed in. This wall perfectly encapsulates the concept for the brand, a sophisticated elegance with just the right amount of edgy attitude. It feels modern, but has authenticity only an experienced Italian can provide.
The thoughtful design and well crafted concept has been greeted with great reviews and a proud owner who truly feel at home in the space.
