The interiors are made more rustic with wooden pizza peels, tin buckets, and colorful ceramics to tie the concept together in the goal of making Greenwich feel like home.

However, modern accents also come into play to give the restaurants a more distinctive look. Digital menu boards and colorful graphics with cheesy lines and colloquial phrases add to the quirkiness of the restaurant, a must for every place who looks into catering the hipper and trendier market.
