Food Service


We love restaurant work! Whether it’s a simple walk-through of a potential new location, a shoestring refurbishment of a neighborhood establishment, or a comprehensive build-out on a grand scale, DLA wants to be there. Our comprehensive understanding of the complex issues facing a restaurant operation makes DLA a great asset for any project.

From facing neighborhood associations and historic commissions, to licensing, access boards or life safety issues, DLA's staff of food service design professionals can provide concept development and budget-appropriate interior design packages, along layouts for the front and back of the house. We have relationships with graphic designers and custom craftsmen who can create original design features for our restaurant clients. DLA can help you get your restaurant open and looking great in a predictable, well-managed process.

Thanks to close working relationships with the area’s top vendors , DLA can provide complete "turn key" restaurant packages that include site selection, design, construction, equipment, operations setup and licensing. This allows you to focus on your purveyors, your staff, and other critical issues. Let DLA be your "go to" resource for any size restaurant project. See the Client List section for a round-up of satisfied clients, past and present.
