The steampunk-inspired upper level is where guests went to dine from the á la carte menus that came with elegant dishes from Chef Moonen’s fun and whimsical cookbooks.
The décor in the venue was reminiscent of 19th-century industrialism, which reminded guests of the Victorian era. Small and large plates served at the venue presented Moonen’s classic comfort food collection that was presented as playful creations.
