Bistro Duet is a modern French Bistro within a vintage bank setting. The building was built in 1920 to be a bank and was turned into a restaurant in 1995. Today, in 2016, we are taking the restaurant over and want to highlight the grand features of the old bank building. Herbs will be grown out of vintage safety deposit boxes on top of the bar and the old deposit box locks will be mounted to the wall as art. I like the idea of perhaps incorporating this into the logo somehow (maybe the text inside a safety deposit box - just an idea).
The food and beverage will be modern and trendy, however, the bank building is vintage and it's located in Arlington, Massachusetts, which is a very historic American town (one of the birthplaces of the American Revolution).
The clientele is a mix of mature and young urban professionals. We are right next to Cambridge, Massachusetts (think Harvard) which caters to a higher-end sophisticated young audience.
I'd love the logo to have a vintage feel (textured, perhaps) yet also have a sophisticated edge to it.
