It’s been a while since I’ve written a design destinations posts but today I am jumping back in with a look at The General Muir deli in Atlanta, GA. I came across this deli on Pinterest (where all of the greatest discoveries are made of course), and fell in love with all of the details. This place has managed to create the perfect balance between casual and upscale with a simple color palette and attention to detail. My favorite part are the black booths with wood detailing which feel formal on their own, but are brought down to earth with the addition of the checkered floors and subway tile.
The design was done by Square Feet Studio, an award-winning architecture, planning and design firm based in Atlanta. Their website tells the story of the inspiration behind the design: “Inspiration for this modern deli came from a black-and-white photograph of our client’s mother on the deck of a Holocaust survivor transport ship called The General Muir. Its destination, New York City, provided a framework for our design, through its authentic delis and industrial details.” The space has been a finalist in both the Los Angeles Restaurant Design Awards and the London Bar & Restaurant Design Awards.
Also, the food looks amazing! Sign me up for the matzoh ball soup and a pastrami sandwich 😛 So when are we going to Atlanta?
