Designed in the style of a European beer hall with 42 feet high cavernous ceilings and communal tables, Steins will serve seasonal, gourmet American comfort cuisine crafted by Executive Chef Colby M. Reade.

Steins interior has a second kitchen and private meeting space, which can serve as restaurant overflow, fully equipped with its own audio-visual system. And they “struck gold with a patio that is 4,000 sq. feet,” Kim said.

The design aesthetics of space lean toward the earth tones—reclaimed wood, stone, rustic colors. A much different look than that of Villa 8.

”What was once a tired, worn-down building has been transformed into a top facility by an award-winning architect, which improves the overall aesthetics of the area and better serves the surrounding community,” said Randol Mackley, senior vice president with SRS Real Estate Partners, who represented Steins’ corporate parent, Probst LLC, in the transaction.

And with such a large space, he’s taken his time with the details. “First impressions are important,” Kim said.
