By: Rebecca Byers - Feb 18, 2016
This Romanian restaurant takes inspiration from traditional Transylvanian cuisine and presents it in a hip environment to meet the desires of the modern consumer. Located in Cluj-Napoca, the vibrant folk art-inspired eatery uses a mix of materials including baked clay, metal and wood to create a space that feels rustic yet contemporary.

The space is characterized by the wide number of decorative accents such as furniture pieces picked up at flea markets that infuse the space with homespun familiarity that guests will appreciate. The experience may feel like guests are dining in a sprawling summertime estate enjoying home cooking and soaking up the sun. The space benefits from floor-to-ceiling windows that illuminate the entire restaurant with a rich supply of natural light.
