At Horizon, we are excited that the much talked about In Bloom restaurant in St.Paul’s Keg and Case Market was named Eaters 2018 Restaurant Design of the Year!
We provided equipment recommendation and installed all the equipment including the hearth’s (very heavy!) 20-foot stove. The stove is fueled by burning oak (to the tune of two cords per week) and it’s divided into five cooking stations, each utilizing sturdy iron grates at various levels to capture different heat levels (from powerful flames to glowing, radiant coals) and using different aromatics (plum wood, vine clippings, hickory) to forge varying flavor profiles. There are no electric or gas-fueled stoves.
A small wood-fueled oven is designed for roasting (including a snack of local grapes, Marcona almonds, olives and figs), and hooks will be used to cook everything from 1 1/2-lb. poussin to venison legs and any other large-scale dishes that can only be done in this special way.
In Bloom has a two-story dining room that is dominated by a massive stone hearth. It’s set at a 45-degree angle from the restaurant’s dining room, which accentuates the views of the action.
The modernity of the finishing details is in stark contrast to the primal hearth and the rough-hewed brick-and-timber shell of the Schmidt’s historic structure. And the 12-seat kitchen counter acts as a front row to the action in the kitchen!
We would like to extend our hearty congratulations to everyone at In Bloom on receiving this exciting recognition!
