We approached the design of the space at ‘NAMO in the same way that we approached the design of the menu. We wanted to create an immersive eating experience, beyond a bowl of pasta or a simple slice of pizza. We wanted the stellar ingredients and our world class chefs to be an intrinsic part of the experience, visible and integral to the design.
With this in mind, we opted for an open plan kitchen allowing guests to see, hear and be a part of the action. The center piece of the kitchen is the traditional Stefano Ferrara oven, our wood-fired, brick-built heart and soul. From here, the kitchen opens out to a double height celling, allowing the atmosphere of the kitchen to travel up to the mezzanine level. The top two floors benefit from wide reaching views of the city’s most iconic landmarks, the Opera House. On the top floor, a faceted brass bar, lends the space a truly cosmopolitan feel.
