The Alcove Restaurant
The Alcove has been a beloved fixture in the Mount Vernon Community since 1911, but had become tired by the time a local family made the bold decision to partner with Cameron Mitchell, transforming the bar, lounge, dining and banquet spaces, not to mention adding a state-of-the-art kitchen. Thoughtful use of architectural salvage along with memorabilia collected over a century allowed the spaces to feel like a continuation of the story rather than an overhaul. The centerpiece of the main dining was a magnificent salvaged cherry colonnade. Washington's historic Mount Vernon is depicted in the oversize toile pattern on feature walls of the main dining space. The owner's love of royal blue and French antiques set the tone through-out. The bar has a decided club feel, while the light-filled upper banquet rooms contrast with a pastel garden palette.
