Crust & Craft, an artisan pizza and craft beer restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, recently underwent renovations that brighten the dining room while maintaining the coastal dining spot’s distinctive character. SoDel Concepts purchased Crust & Craft in February 2019.
“We planned on doing a few minor changes – just a freshening,” said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, which owns 11 restaurants in coastal Delaware. “But when our design team took a look at the space, they had so many wonderful ideas that we decided to go with them.”
Lead designers Carey Graviet and Lisa Kammerer worked with SoDel Concepts’ asset management team, led by Chris Sockriter, and the subcontractors to complete the updates in just 10 days.
“We collaborated with the staff at Crust & Craft to create an environment that was as efficient as it was appealing,” Graviet said. “Katie Sherman, the general manager, was essential to the process. She brought everyone together to help us finish the project in such a short amount of time.” Improvements include white penny tile in the entrance and vinyl wood-like flooring in the dining room.
Those who like to dine at the bar will appreciate the new black leather seats, the rustic wood bar front, the new gray quartz countertop and the tile on the back wall, which matches the wood-burning pizza oven.
In the dining room, longtime guests will notice the new pendant lighting, black-and-white vintage photographs, new tables, a fresh coat of light gray paint and a rustic wood wall, which is a clean backdrop for the black metal Crust & Craft artwork. There is also Crust & Craft artwork on the back wall, which is covered in white subway tiles.
The designers did not neglect the kitchen, which also received classic white subway tiles and gray quartz countertops. “The designers did an amazing job,” Scott Kammerer said. “Everyone has been impressed with what they’ve accomplished.”
