EI017The meaning of “Lila” (pronounced lee-lah) is loosely translated to be fun, whimsical, and creative; a philosophy which set the tone for the design program. Located in a renovated 1920’s building in the heart of Downtown Sarasota, Lila came to life through a design process which leveraged the space’s existing assets; its high ceilings with wood trusses, original terrazzo floors, and large transom windows. The vegan-friendly restaurant features an open kitchen, clad in white subway tiles, bar seating with concrete counter tops, and a dining room filled with modern-rustic styled banquettes and tables. A decorative crystal chandelier, natural woods, and exposed mechanicals serve to reinforce Lila’s unique aesthetic.
