Longoven is a 62-seat restaurant located in a former paint warehouse, where an inventive culinary program found a permanent home after years of experimentation and pop-ups. An approachable, bright, and familiar front dining room is juxtaposed against the dark, mysterious, and calming rear room. The threshold between the two dining experiences is a compressed box that focuses perception and heightens awareness as the spectacle unfolding at the kitchen pass becomes the focal point.
