Kitchen 21
Brooklyn, NY

Originally completed in 1924, the nautical themed Childs Restaurants is a New York City designated landmark on the Coney Island Boardwalk. The building has been restored to house Kitchen 21 – a new, five-in-one restaurant designed by EwingCole. In a nod to Brooklyn’s landmark Parachute Jump, the row of restored arched windows behind the long bar overlook the Jump while a replica of one of the double seat swings that used to freefall from the amusement ride hangs inside the restaurant. The steel structures and lighting between the arched windows were inspired by historic images of the amusement parks at Coney Island in the late 1800’s -early 1900’s: Luna Park, Steeplechase and Dreamland. The seating was designed to provide optimal viewing of the stage for the restaurant patrons when the stage doors are open. The café counters are mobile and designed to allow flexibility for the restaurant: hosting movie nights, beverage tastings, or event rentals.
