Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (MBDS) completed the Café Boulud at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. Suspended above street level, the French brasserie has a midcentury-inspired aesthetic that was reinterpreted with contemporary furnishings and a warm color palette.
Interiors have ribbed banquets upholstered in jaguar green and tan leather with tweed detailing, 1950s-inspired chairs in oxblood-ruched leather, blue herringbone wallpaper, walnut elements and lava stone corner tables. There is also a line of 14 bespoke double-pendant lights with brass details at the center of the room.
The restaurant’s highlight is a marble-topped dining counter with wood panels painted in a glossy lacquer and eight oxblood leather bar stools.
In addition, a private dining room is available for up to eight guests.
