A new culinary experience is being brought to life by kebab enthusiasts Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet with the help of ultra-compact, innovative and resilient Dekton® by Cosentino. In Covent Garden, London, Maison Bab is the second restaurant opened by Tozer and Brunet that seeks to celebrate the high-street staple, kebabs. The main seating area is casual but stylish with colourful wooden flooring and dark furnishings complemented by large, bright windows, white walls, and indoor plants.
The designer behind the atmosphere is Angus Buchanan who successfully incorporated Dekton® throughout the restaurant. A variety of greys and whites were specified to produce the bar and tabletops, with abstract shapes offering intrigue whilst the neutrals provide visual cohesion. The unique pieces were fabricated by Project Stone International who made use of their own expertise, and the incredible properties of Dekton®.
Downstairs the restaurant has created an entirely different interior, fully stretching the limits of Dekton®. Within Maison Bab sits Queen Kebab, situated under the main restaurant this special space welcomes diners into a craftily cultivated culinary treat. The food is made directly infront of customers, much like a traditional kebab shop, but the similarities end there. The concept is for a completely plate-free dining experience made available to ten diners at once who are treated to a seven-course tasting menu including dishes such as ‘Doner Risotto’.
The entire experience would not have been possible if not for the durable Dekton® surfaces. Being able to serve dishes right onto the counter proved to be logistically complicated as the material needed to be heat resistant, scratch resistant, and easy to clean, as well as being stain resistant, hygenic, and extremely hard-wearing. The Dekton® counter ensures there are no difficulties placing hot pans, cleaning between courses, and providing an exciting plate-free experience.
