The restaurants occupy separate but connected spaces, sharing an all-new kitchen. Other additions include a four-season room built onto the existing building, providing protected outdoor seating for around 40 guests. Serving up to 165 guests, the restaurants have hired around 40 experienced bar and restaurant staff.
