“The dining area will be designed to look like a park. Two massive trees will replace columns and leaves will be abundant, creating the illusion that foliage is growing into the ceiling, said co-founder Phil Richard. Picnic tables, yard games, a stage and outdoor-themed decor will create a ‘backyard cool atmosphere, with air conditioning,’ he added.”
