A long desolate storefront on the Upper West Side received much-needed love and attention when Restauranteur Greg Hunt set out to open Cafe Tallulah – a bi-level 3,000 sq ft French bistro and cocktail lounge. Over 10 months and through the vision of Gene Kaufman Architect, OTL transformed the space into a restaurant that is never reviewed without mention of its atmosphere.
A 50-ft zinc bar, lauded as the longest in Manhattan
Tin ceilings and exposed brick perpetuate an authentic vibe
Steel back bar at the main bar modeled after the steel work in Penn Station
Custom wood work, antique mirrors, and beams in cellar wrapped with mushroom wood
Upgraded entire sewer system under the building and connect to the street
