If you’ve noticed that the light fixtures at Nonna lend a decidedly reproductive aesthetic to Chef Julian Barsotti’s Highland Park spot, you’ll perhaps be glad to know that the distinctive chandeliers are headed for the dumpster.
According to GuideLive, Barsotti will soon shutter Nonna to refresh the nine-year-old restaurant’s interior. Among the ditched decor are Nonna’s light fixtures, which, according to Dallas Morning News critic Leslie Brenner are shaped like sperm.
Well, maybe? Along with the light fixtures, the restaurant’s color scheme will get a revamp, as will the bar top, barstools, and banquettes. Acoustic felt will be installed to reduce the small space’s sometimes over-the-top noise level. "The enhancements will not alter the fundamental layout," Barsotti told Brenner. "But will improve upon what is nice about the space."
The new, improved (hopefully less sperm-inspired) Nonna will debut on August 29.
