After we successfully completed Butterfield 81, the owners offered Bronx Builders a design-build contract for their next venture, Aretsky’s Patroon. This pre-selection of a team with restaurant experience was crucial in keeping the fast-paced schedule running smoothly. The renovation of the legendary Crist Cella restaurant involved the salvage and refinishing of a period bar, original flooring, and Art Deco light fixtures, as well as installing a new state-of-the-art kitchen. Soon after Aretsky’s Patroon opened, we were asked to return to build an outdoor rooftop dining area.
