Local architecture firm Praxis3 is designing Lazy Betty with an “industrial chic” aesthetic. The interior will feature natural light, muted colors and exposed brick and concrete flooring. The dining room will seat 28, and another 18 seats will be in a lounge area with chef’s counter. Lazy Betty will also feature an outdoor patio seating 25.
In anticipation of the opening, Lazy Betty hosted supper club dinners throughout the summer.
