I’ll blame the delay in posts on holiday events, because there was no shortage of progress on the site over the past couple weeks. BGC is finishing up — laying the final floor tiles, applying the last pieces of exterior slate, installing restroom fixtures, and painting the patio railing.
Meanwhile, the Gill Group has been delivering and installing pieces of kitchen equipment. Here’s a picture of the “Cold Prep” area in the kitchen. The window on the left looks out into the back corridor, so guests can peek inside the kitchen.
The focal point of the restaurant is the 60″ grill that faces the dining area. The grill itself will be part of a larger installation of hooding and custom fabricated stainless steel pieces. The picture below shows the giant stainless steel hood sitting on the floor waiting to be hung above the grill.
KGI, the “finishing” contractors arrive on Friday to install the final decorative elements. They have spent the past few months building our cabinetry, exterior signage, awnings, menu boards, and ceiling decor in their Ohio factory. So they’ll load up an eighteen-wheeler and haul everything over to Annapolis to begin installation. Since everything is already built, the transformation over the next three days should be remarkable.
