Take a Look Inside Nicky’s Coal Fired

It opens today at 5 p.m.

Today is the day, as Nicky’s Coal Fired swings open the doors this evening for its first public dinner service. The restaurant, designed by Jamie Pfeffer and Evan Gibbs of Pfeffer Torode Architecture, incorporates many of the building’s preserved industrial elements, including textured brick walls, plate-glass steel windows and raw beams. High ceilings, ample natural light and a lighter color palate keep the space bright and airy. And with family at the heart of the restaurant (Nicky is executive chef/partner Tony Galzin’s younger brother, and the four-ton coal fired oven is named after his great grandfather), there is, appropriately, a wall dedicated to generations of family photos.
