Equiping the Kitchen and Bar

A friend who recently opened a restaurant here in Porto recommended Refrinovar to provide and install equipment. It was another lucky find. Although the kitchen is not yet complete, we can already see that they are doing top quality work. Commercial kitchen equipment is expensive stuff, and also critically important. It has to be built to last, stand up to constant hard use, and run reliably every day. We did some homework and planning, but the fact is we are novices. This is the first bar we are designing. Ricardo at Refrinovar helped a lot, he had great advice, and worked with us to solve problems of limited space.

The structure of the bar is in place also. This structure will be covered with some wood panels, and the top will be brass.  Having these elements in place goes a long way to making the space feel like a bar, but there's still a lot of work to do. Yesterday, I was in the space and the bar shelves were going up.  I didn't get any pictures, but they look great.
