Project Challenges and Outcomes


DLA+ was asked to design a restaurant that could function as a standalone, full-service restaurant within Giant Eagle Market District’s flagship grocery store in Indiana.  The store, which would need to adhere to strict aesthetic and zoning guidelines, was to be a large anchor in a new development, The Bridges, in the affluent neighborhood of Carmel.  The restaurant within the store was a fairly new concept and would need to bring a different consumer shopping experience to stand out in a crowded retail segment in the community.


The design brought a prairie style of architecture to the Market District façade in accordance with the landscape and aesthetic of the community.  The full-service restaurant, table by Market District, includes a bar area, open kitchen and outdoor seating area with fire pit feature.
