Perspectus’ latest project for the Cleveland Clinic is now open to the public.
As the architect of record, Perspectus provided design services for architecture and interiors, construction administration and coordination of engineers and equipment vendors.
Perspectus designed the 17,000 square-foot dining space consistent with the Cleveland Clinic’s branding and philosophy of creating environments free of clutter and distractions, making it a peaceful and relaxing place for patients, their families and Clinic staff to eat. The facility boasts abundant natural light and views of the surrounding neighborhood with large floor to ceiling windows on three sides of the space. The Food Emporium delivers a retreat from the otherwise stressful experience of being in a hospital.
The Food Emporium supports the Cleveland Clinic’s efforts to provide healthier food. Working in collaboration with Bon Appetit Management Company, a food-service management company with a focus on local, sustainable food sources, the redesigned space features six neighborhoods of food. Each concept delivers fresh, wholesome options using whole grains, minimally-processed meats, and an emphasis on locally-sourced the ingredients whenever possible.
One of the six neighborhoods includes the first Beefsteak location in the Great Lakes region. Beefsteak is a vegetable-forward restaurant chain led by James Beard Award and Michelin Star winner, Jose Andres.
Other concepts include:
Starbucks: Third location on the campus
Char: Burgers and sandwiches
Carve: Mediterranean / Hummus Bar
Simmer and Steam: Vietnamese Pho
