Frankie & Benny's

Leicester Highcross

The brief

Situated at the crossroads of Leicester's Highcross mall this Frankie and Benny's was formerly two separate retail units. Our brief was to combine the units and add a mezzanine floor with a shopfront that complimented the rest of shopping and entertainment centre. Sound reduction was also an issue as the Show Case cinema is right next door.

The solution

The restaurant showcases all the features and details you would expect from the brand. Large circular "godfather" banquette seating means it can easily accommodate families and larger groups. Copper heat lamps add visual and actual warmth on the servery pass, whilst the mirrored soffit creates interesting reflections.
