Fins Bar & Grill Cape May, NJ
FINS dining room with giant fish tank eating bar
The former Pilot House, a fried seafood joint for 30 years received a full gut and demolition of the interior. Raymond was given full latitude on the conceptual design but the owners drew the line at the “submarine room!” A glass LED edge lit bar top was made in Canada and installed by local contractors. The restaurant has 2 aquariums, and when you look up to the ceiling in the dining room, it simulates being underwater.

Service Counter at Broad Street Restaurant
Raymond took a burned out warehouse and reimagined this multi-dimensional space including garage doors that open to the street. All natural raw finishes including concrete and steel were using in the design which Haldeman calls, “upscale industrial chic.” He even made a private dining space in the lower level (formally the basement!)
