Joey & Chi worked closely with Coeval Studios on the beautiful design of Tanoshii. According to John Paul Valverde, principal of the design firm, the restaurant will maintain parts of the old Deep Ellum building. “We felt we needed to keep the essence of the old Deep Ellum building.  Most of the general space was kept with the existing elements – the brick walls, concrete flooring, tin ceiling and more.  Bold wood elements are added to the space and softened with custom Japanese noren signage and fabric shade lights.  The dining room consists of low back seating with a community table and cushioned benches.  The space is clean and open, while also maintaining a rustic and warm environment.” Coeval Studios also designed Belly & Trumpet in Uptown, PakPao in the Design District, Mutts in West Village and Kitchen LTO in West Dallas.
