Remember that cool project of Graham’s that I mentioned a few months ago? The one in Los Alamos, California? We are back in town, just for a day, and at last I can share more details!
G designed the brand identity for a new restaurant called Bell’s. He worked with the restaurant’s owners, Per Se alums Daisy and Greg Ryan, who are marvelous in all ways. They’re incredibly generous and warm-hearted, they have impeccable taste, and their restaurant is somewhere I’d gladly dine a couple of times a week. The menu features French bistro-inspired classics, all with a distinct California twist—dishes like steak tartare, frisée salad with bacon and Point Reyes blue cheese, and a chicken salad sandwich that comes with spectacularly delicious housemade pickles.
There’s beauty in the details everywhere you look at Bell’s. When you go, keep your eye out for the fun wallpaper in the bathroom, the gold-leafed number on the door, and, of course, the custom lettering and illustrations G created for the restaurant’s menus.
