First Look: Interior Designs for Back Bay Harry's

By Scott Kearnan
September 5, 2013

Here's your first glimpse of the design renderings for Back Bay Harry's, opening this month. A couple weeks ago we showed you the spread that will come courtesy of Hell's Kitchen alum Jason Santos (Blue Inc., Abby Lane), which includes innovative American fare like vodka battered fish 'n' chips, Jack and Coke baby back ribs, and whopping manchego cheese sticks with serrano ham and black truffle honey. (It's an elaborated nod to a famed plate found at the spot's former inhabitant, Geoffrey's Cafe.)

Now the restaurant, with a name that references owner and city power player Harry Collings, a 30-year BRA bigwig, has a set look:  The space is the creation of HGTV and Restaurant Impossible personality Taniya Nayak, whose local work includes the interiors of Santos's other restaurants: plus Petit Robert Central and Turner's Yard. Nayak's design was inspired by the existing architecture of the large arched windows, and looks to offer a casual-chic combo of contemporary and vintage flourishes. Expect smoky mirrors, custom brass chandeliers, hand stenciled wooden floors, channel tufted teal banquettes and chevron tiled columns against a serene color scheme of muted tones. Tasty, Taniya. Save us a seat.
