Design firm Richardson Design unveils Mabel’s BBQ for chef Michael Symon in Cleveland

World-renowned chef Michael Symon has a new restaurant in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Fans of the James Beard Foundation Award-winning foodie  can not only have a taste of Cleveland-style barbeque at Mabel’s, but can also take in the design details created by Richardson Design.

Located in the heart of downtown, Mabel’s BBQ draws inspiration from suburban life based on Symon’s childhood memories – a time when the city’s suburbs were focused on family and fun.

Upon arrival, customers can see the workbench-turned hostess station. Reminiscent of cookouts where platters of food were laid out on any open surface in the garage, the workbench anchors an industrial leather rolling door – a stylistic nod to the motorcycle-riding Symon.

Across the vestibule, an oversized neon sign created by Tremont artist Jeffry Chillis is encapsulated by wire mesh to emulate the suburban chain-link fence, where glowing red text reading “Eat More Meat” speaks directly to diners.

A communal picnic table is centred in the space and folding chairs inspired by the Industrial era are used as well. Matchstick artwork appears in some key locations to represent the place where all BBQ begins.

“When I set out to create Mabel's, I wanted to combine the feel of a rustic smokehouse with the relaxed, convivial vibe of a backyard cookout. Richardson totally brought that vibe to life,” says Symon.
