Frankie’s Steak and Seafood

Frankie’s is a compliment to Franco Vessia’s eponymous restaurant located in Irvine, California. Conceived as a snapshot of Sinatra era desert restaurants, Frankie’s is a return to the classic dining and libation experience.

Wine is the order of the day drawing it’s inspiration from Franco’s own local vineyard. A floor to ceiling glass wine case flanks the large bar and a wine grotto complete with a delicately curved ceiling glows warmly in the rear of the restaurant.

The bar is the centerpiece of this space. A rich marble bar top shimmers from the custom light fixtures shining from the soffit above. Custom glass work crafted by glass artist Shelley Sivak and art work by local artisans adorn the rich textured plaster walls.

DeWees Design completed this project in collaboration with Shelley Sivak of SIS Studios.
