The second location under the Mistral brand umbrella, Mistral KOP is a chef driven restaurant concept at the King of Prussia mall. Four-time James Beard semifinalist, Scott Anderson, will continue to oversee the Princeton and King of Prussia locations. Different than the typical mall dining experience, Mistral’s exterior and interior designs combined with the seasonal, local menu are set to introduce a dynamic culinary experience to the area. Found throughout the project are diverse examples of reSAWN products: WABI SABI shou sugi ban exterior siding, GOVERNOR european white oak flooring, and custom stairs designed to match the flooring.
Eimer Design, out of Philadelphia, designed the exterior and interior of the new restaurant. When considering Mistral’s culinary style, the selection of WABI SABI shou sugi ban charred exterior siding is clear because of the siding’s durability, FSC® certification, and extended product life cycle. Additionally, the shou sugi ban exterior siding stands out from the rest of the mall’s neutral colored facade.
The interior of the restaurant is brightly lit with pendant lighting, white textured interior cladding, and GOVERNOR european white oak flooring. reSAWN’s custom designed stair parts lead up to a lifted platform lounge area that features couches and other decorative seating. Mistral plans to expand their seating capacity with an outdoor, patio dining area.
Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications. CHARRED shou sugi ban Accoya® combines two naturally durable solutions. By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast-growing and abundantly available certified wood species, Accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods (which are often unsustainably sourced), woods treated with toxic preservative chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics, steel and concrete.
Mistral opened its first location in Princeton, NJ in 2013, offering locals and passersby alike a stunning mix of taste, style and atmosphere. Food activists and culinary pioneer’s chef Scott Anderson and chef de cuisine Ben Nerenhausen place a superlative emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, ultimately creating a progressive menu of seasonally curated small plates for guests to savor and share time and again.
