My Friend's Cool New Coastal Restaurant

I've said it before, 
I'm blown away by my friend, Debbie's talent!
She invited us up to Westlake Village, California to visit the
Lure Fish House that she designed
for her sister and brother-in-law.  
This is the second restaurant 
This is the reception area.  
I was with Debbie when she bought the artwork.
Her father created the coral/bottle melded piece in the alcove.
Another cute waiting spot.
Debbie had the challenge of making the huge bar that was 
there previously feel intimate...
notice how she used six large iron pendant lights 
to bring it to scale?
And she mentioned "look at the ceiling treatment."

We had Debbie's birthday lunch in the corner booth.
I love the blue green ocean colors and the blown glass sconces from Cleveland Art.
Friendly waitstaff! 

Debbie created cozy nooks for two with these custom chairs.
Nice board and batten.  
See the wine racks?
On the other side is a private dining room...

Fishing lure diagrams were hand drawn on the chairs.

On the way to the restrooms...
It feels a bit like you are under water...

Notice the wide mitered edges on the marble...

And this vignette below is my favorite.  
The floor lamp....wow!
They had an artist custom draw the sea life on the wall.
We had a magnificent lunch at Lure Westlake Village 
and then went 
outlet shopping in Camarillo. 

Afterwards, Debbie suggested that we 
have dinner at the third, 
recently completed, Lure restaurant in Ventura.
Oh, hell yeah!
Isn't this cool night time lighting???
Another custom mural...

Here are some happy, well fed girlfriends.
The birthday girl is in the center.
If you are ANYWHERE in Southern California, 
you need to go to one of the Lure Fish Houses!
