Conduit sits in a commercial zone on the ground floor of a residential building. All kinds of plumbing, heating and electrical pipes run overhead, hanging from the low ceiling. Making the best of the situation, architect Stanley Saitowitz magically transformed the less-than-advantageous space with a clever design trick.
Rather than trying to hide the existing tubes, he went wild and put in even more pipes to camouflage the working ones. The result is a striking industrial interior that serves as the perfect stage for Conduit's gourmet fare. Touches of frosted glass, granite and black wood balance the bold look of the pipes and give a warmth to the atmosphere. A long fireplace welcomes you into the space, and the kitchen is open, with an attached bar for a front row seat to the cooking action.
Oh, and the food? The menu is contemporary American with French and Italian influences that incorporate organic ingredients and products from small local producers.
