Exki is a casual chain of eateries that was established in 2001 and very popular throughout Europe. CNY Construction Management has recently constructed the second Exki restaurant located in entire U.S. Due to the successful construction and grand opening of this NoMad (North of Madison Park in Manhattan) facility, the Exki company has decided to expand the chain throughout New York and other U.S. cities.
Highly coordinated mechanical systems allowed for an appealing high ceiling. The space combines a roomy circulation area (for self-serve stations, barista station and display kitchen) with a cozy / inviting dining area. Adding to the interior appeal are warm yet modern pallet of colors, stone, metal and natural wood finishes. Large chalk-board painted wall sections display artistically rendered menu items and information about locally procured foods.
