Coming Soon: Oak Oven Old Metairie

DMG will soon be breaking ground on Oak Oven’s second restaurant, which will be located in Old Metairie. Since 2015, the old Garden Gate location on Metairie Rd. has been abandoned and deteriorating, but we’re about to turn back the hands of time. DMG has been working closely with the owner of Oak Oven through design development to achieve his vision for the new location. The property is just over a ½ acre and DMG can’t wait to transform the property with a 2,200 square foot addition off the rear of the existing structure, a new parking lot and a fully updated landscape plan. 

While maintaining the existing aesthetic of a New Orleans cottage home, DMG will seamlessly blend a mixture of rustic wood and iron, with tile feature walls, elegant fixtures, and clean lines for an updated, clean and industrial chic design. The existing wood floors will be refinished throughout the space and into the new dining room for a consistent flow from front to back. Recessed lighting and speakers will be installed throughout to achieve specific lighting and sound ambiance for the changing lunch and dinner atmosphere. The bar area will be redesigned to showcase a mosaic tile feature wall with open shelving and a stately rustic wood bar with marble countertops, upon which Oak Oven will serve their specialty craft cocktails and spirits. 

The 2,200 square foot addition will be home to a brand new kitchen, an additional dining room, and a banquet hall for private parties and entertaining. A brand new updated parking lot will provide ample space for Oak Oven’s patrons and will have a driveway and drop off zone on the side of the building. As the final touch on this restaurant’s transformation, DMG will provide the entire site with a major landscape upgrade.
