ABOUT THE PROJECT
Streetsense, a strategy and design collective dedicated to creating meaningful experiences, oversaw the branding for the new Kimpton Glover Park Hotel. The 154-room property is currently undergoing a significant, multimillion-dollar renovation, rebrand and redesign of all guest rooms, public areas, restaurant, outdoor and event spaces. The comprehensive brand strategy was developed in conjunction with world-renowned artist Michele Oka Doner’s conceptual vision and design work for the hotel. Streetsense also designed the hotel’s full-service restaurant concept – Casolare.
Life is good inside Michael Schlow’s newest destination restaurant in Washington, DC. Offering fare from Amalfi, Sardinia, Puglia, Cinque Terre, and Livorno, Casolare brings coastal Italian cuisine to Glover Park, with a wide selection of seafood as well as wood-fired pizza and antipasti. The vibrant eatery proves a perfect spot in which to gather big groups of family members, colleagues, or friends new and old. Many dishes are adaptations of what James Beard Award-winning Chef Schlow learned from home cooks throughout his travels to Italy, featuring seasonal preparations of staples like maltagliati with local crab, chiles, and green onions, and porchetta with orange zest, broccoli rabe, and fennel pollen. Lighter dishes include a seafood salad “Capri style,” a crudo of the day, and swordfish with spicy eggplant caponata and salsa verde. In line with Kimpton’s health-conscious philosophy, Casolare serves up nourishing Southern Italian food that uses only the freshest ingredients, with a focus on local fish.
