Mr. Shabu at The Gateway

The owner of this new concept restaurant for Salt Lake City had a vision to share his favorite Korean food, Shabu-Shabu, with the local market. The challenge would be to transform and up-level the cookie cutter space previously occupied by a national chain restaurant into a unique, entirely personal dining experience. At Mr. Shabu, the diner makes their selection from a buffet of seasonal, fresh ingredients and prepares them at their table on an individual induction burner. FFKR’s Commercial Interiors team accepted the challenge of transforming an outdated, formula-driven space into a dynamic magnet at The Gateway mall.
