Tosca Restaurant serves as an example of an interior design of a dining facility and general service space. The challenge for Marshall Moya Design for Tosca, a 5,500 sq. ft. upscale northern Italian restaurant in the Penn Quarter of downtown Washington, D.C., was to convey the elegance of a high-style Milanese establishment in a serene and acoustically-friendly space. Warm, walnut cabinetry located throughout the restaurant contributes to the clean and neutral monochromatic tones. Various dining arrangements await the customer, such as the modern glass and wood-detailed bar; the large, open dining room flanked by the smaller-scaled “loggia” area; and the exclusive “chef’s table,” housed in an alcove off the restaurant’s kitchen.
