Architectural Digest 11 Most Stylish Restaurants In NYC

2019 was a special year for Indoteak Design. We had some incredible projects cross the finish line and achieve recognition from design firms, magazines and media alike. To say we are grateful is an understatement. To be share our passion for the environment, design and wanting to create truly unique things with great people is all we could ever ask for. 2019 delivered in spades.

We got to see Celebrity Chefs Nobu(Palo Alto Nobu) and Bobby Flay(Shark Las Vegas) open new highly acclaimed restaurants that featured our products. Then we had the honor of watching two amazing young designers from the Design Firm: PHENOMENA in Brooklyn, New York get nominated at the BDNY Gold Key Awards for their Life Alive restaurant in Boston that featured our tiles as flooring. This was one of the most beautiful and original floors we have ever done.

To top that off, Architectural Digest put out an article of New York’s 11 Most Stylish Restaurants. Indoteak Design was featured in two of these incredible projects. We are extremely humbled to be chosen by home owners, designers, business owners & architects for their projects. To know they trust us to deliver our special reclaimed teak to their projects means the world to us.We work everyday to make a difference by recycling and reclaiming this rare resource and turning it into something beautiful that lends a vibe so special, so rare, we are just thrilled that so many understand what we are trying to do.

We just want to say thank you to all of you who have worked with us in the past and we look forward to working with you even more in the future.

All the best!

Owner Indoteak Design






“For his debut solo restaurant, Cedric Vongerichten—son of Jean-Georges Vongerichten—and his wife, Ochi, tapped into her Indonesian roots to create Wayan. Though you’ll find Indonesian specialties like nasi goreng, satays, and curries, the menu has a bit of a French influence thanks to Cedric’s formal culinary training. He and Ochi hired the Rockwell Group to design the restaurant, which has a barroom up front and a dining room in the back. They incorporated natural materials like teak paneling, several different types of stone, and whitewashed brick, complimented by Balinese carvings, lush plants, and brass lamps that cast a romantic glow over the space.”

Feroce Ristorante

“Designed by the Rockwell Group, Feroce Ristorante is the ground-floor Italian hot spot at the new Moxy Chelsea hotel. Run by Francesco Panella and the team behind Antica Pesa in Rome and Brooklyn, it brings a new level of sophistication to the Moxy brand. For the design, the Rockwell Group drew inspiration from the surrounding Flower District and romantic Italian gardens to create a dramatic backdrop for diners to indulge in dishes like eggplant parmigiana and fettucine with lobster. Artwork drawn from vintage Italian advertisements adds a playful touch.”
