Tasting Counter

Somerville, MA

New Concept and Design-Build


Chef Peter Ungár envisioned an intimate restaurant where the menu remains secret until guests arrive and are taken through an interactive, multi-sensory dining experience. RealFood was selected as the foodservice design partner on this new 25-seat concept located in a hidden corner of Somerville, MA.


RealFood developed a space that created a performance stage where the culinary team and its creations blended seamlessly with the guest’s dining experience. To support the chef’s culinary style, the design team integrated cutting-edge culinary technology and unique front of house finishes to bring the guest into the experience of meal creation.

  • Foodservice Facility Design
  • Pro-forma Budgets & Budget Development
  • Custom Fabrication Design
  • Construction Coordination


Working within a stark industrial space and aggressive budget allowed a truly unique space to come to fruition without sacrificing functionality or style. Chef Ungár and his restaurant earned accolades from local press and national attention for the tasting menu format, inventive cuisine and memorable guest experience.
