Oshun Oyster Bar and (716) Food and Sport are not only two of our favorite projects in 2014-2015, but arguably a couple of our all time favorites.  The task at hand for Oshun involved restoring original features such as flowing Terrazzo floors and Bas-Relief wall murals of the former Waldorf Astoria luncheon counter and transforming the space into a contemporary Oyster Bar.   Oshun's design includes an open kitchen, full service bar, oyster bar and a spacious, open dining area with seating for 125 guests.  Check out the full gallery here: Oshun

(716) Food and Sport is up for "Best Restaurant/Entertainment Venue" and if you've been there- you know why.  Working closely with Pegula Sports and Entertainment to create a one-of-a-kind sports fan destination was a dream-come-true for many of the BHNT personnel.  BHNT's professional photographs of (716) are currently in production, and will be featured on our website soon.
