Knife Pleat


Location South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, CA

Project Size 4,510 SF

JRM Construction West completed the remodel of Knife Pleat, a French restaurant helmed by LA-based chefs Tony Esnault and restauranteur Yassmin Sarmadi. JRM worked closely with architecture firm Johnson Fain and Syska Hennessy Group to deliver the 4,510 SF remodel. The project took 36 weeks to complete and involved numerous base building upgrades, including structural steel and MEP infrastructure.

The scope of the project included a full new kitchen and prep area, installation of all new state-of-the-art appliances and equipment, decorative chandeliers and light fixtures, custom wood flooring and finishes, and a back-lit custom onyx storefront system with custom details. Beyond the remodel, the project also included the construction of a brand-new outdoor patio area with exterior pavers, a trellis, and a stucco façade.
