Hi, I'm Tristan and I'll be your waiter tonight
The first big change has bubbled up from Water Grill, the Downtown seafood stunner that is undergoing a rehab after 20 years to refresh its surroundings while adding a few new ideas to the menu. Here we have the restaurant’s brand new, updated logo, an adorable, focused little seahorse bearing a silver platter in his wee mitts. Clearly, this is good stuff that will look great screened onto a t-shirt or etched on a window. The new logo adds a shade of irreverence to the sometimes intimidating reputation of the restaurant, while stressing its M.O. as a seafood obsessive and service-oriented upscale, while also flirting with a sprinkle of snoot-less edge and old-schoolism. Expect more changes to come as the restaurant clings closely to its mid-January re-opening date and let us know what you think of the logo in our comments.
