Comfortable seating is of prime importance to Kahin, so he went with American made button-tufted black wall benches. American quality and workmanship is important to him because he needs durable seating that can withstand heavy traffic.

Situated in the more subdued part of the restaurant, the wall benches are a perfect match to the color scheme and wall decor and also aid in maximizing the available seating which otherwise would make the space too cramped for comfort. Also made in the US the solid wood table tops are the finishing touch in this well designed and inviting space.
