MCN performed an interior renovation of an existing space to create a beautiful new restaurant and bar with a gourmet kitchen and storehouse. Ilili is a Lebanese restaurant that has been crowned the “Jewel of the Wharf.” This 6,261 square foot, $1.2M project was transformed from a glass cube into an exquisite courtyard. The interior of the space is inspired by the enchanting gardens found within the courtyards of longstanding Beirut homes. The space features high ceilings and an enclosed patio lined with trees and suspended birdcages filled with steel doves that hover seven feet above the ground.
