Stephanie and Maurizio Bertossi have built many restaurants in the Halifax area and we are happy to have been their chosen millworker for each of these jobs.
The Bicycle Thief replaced another Bertossi restaurant for which Mill-Right provided custom millwork for, Bish World Cuisine.
Formal cherry was replaced with basic oaks, poplar and pines. Each wood piece was finished to appear old and well used. The products were scored and partially sanded before stain finishes were applied. Then the stain was sanded through in places before satin clear coats were added. The use of wood and the distinctive finishes really set this project apart from other restaurants; the large bar, distinct wine display cabinets, table tops, banquette seating, columns and wall finishes all add to the formula of good food in a unique and relaxed setting.
