Kozeny-Wagner was selected by PB&J Restaurants to provide construction services for their new Mediterranean-style Bistro called Yia Yia’s Euro Cafe located in Chesterfield, Missouri. This unique restaurant features a distinctive atmosphere with custom lighting, a radius bar, stone columns, ornate handrails and custom inlaid mosaic tile flooring. Other special features include a climate-controlled wine cellar, private dining room, brick pizza oven, cocktail/dining lounge, colored concrete dining patio and full service kitchen. This aggressive, fast paced design-build project was completed in 22 weeks.
Project challenges included extensive pre-construction planning and integration of numerous owner supplied materials and subcontractors while maintaining strict adherence to the schedule. In addition, the owner required a phased turnover of the kitchen to accommodate training for the kitchen staff.
“Kozeny-Wagner did an outstanding job delivering our first restaurant to the St. Louis market. The quality is outstanding and they completed the project on time and within our budget. When we build again, my first choice will be Kozeny-Wagner.”
