Designer and metalworker Mickie Spencer is one of the partners in forthcoming New Orleans-style diner Sawyer & Co., and her mid-century modern theme is evident in everything from the restaurant's front windows to its clock. A recent plywood gallery showcases the many playful period touches Spencer has created for the revamped space, which was formerly home to Arkie's Grill.
Spencer and partner Stephen Shallcross of Swoop House intend Sawyer & Co. to be a neighborhood restaurant for far East Cesar Chavez. According to a Facebook post, the opening is currently slated for "late summer." Take a look around the progress on the space below.
