The Entrance at Morimoto Restaurant

The entrance to the esteemed Japanese restaurant  Morimoto in Chelsea, in New York City, has a design aesthetic that is contemporary yet firmly nods to its cultural roots. The epic-large curtain or  noren (a cloth commonly found hanging at the entrances to kitchens, restaurants and baths in Japan) is a traditional decorative item that has been given a refreshingly modern twist at Morimoto.
