Saffy’s Restaurant

Role: Architect of Record
Location: East Hollywood, Los Angeles CA
Type: 2,500 SF Restaurant Tenant Improvement

A neighborhood restaurant from Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis (chef-owners of Bestia and Bavel) located in the heart of East Hollywood, Saffy’s celebrates its middle eastern flavors and design while honoring its Los Angeles heritage. Architect NCA Studio worked closely with Gergis and Nicky Kaplan Interiors to bring their ‘70s era Moroccan design into the historical Art Deco building and transform the previously all deco restaurant space into this middle eastern gem.

Pale pink hues, golden accents, light wood tones and art deco stained glass fill the space with a light hearted and inviting energy. Diners gaze directly into the expanded open kitchen where sparks fly from the live fire wood grill and the energetic buzz of the chefs fills the air. The perfect setting for good food, good times and celebrating with friends.
