Fido blurs the line between coffeehouse and restaurant. Chef John Stephenson continuously re-creates the menu. With fish and steak specials, breakfast all day and a seasonal menu, Fido is known as much for its food as the coffee. Fido also serves a classy selection of beer. The Fido space was entirely re-done before opening, yet it feels like it has been there forever. To create the comfortable atmosphere, we ripped plaster off brick walls, took down drop ceilings, repaired and repainted the tin ceiling and used a few design tricks. A special wall treatment makes the new construction feel old. Some of the original tile floors were saved. And new mahogany and green marble counters were built to complete the warm, inviting feel.
