The Clover & The Bee


This new 45-seat, independent, full-service restaurant had to be consistent with the Olive + Oak brand — featuring high quality design — yet still be cost effective. Converting the space from a previous bookstore into a restaurant as well as working inside an existing building on a street with a high concentration of pedestrian traffic posed unique construction challenges as well.


Lawrence Group presented several design options along with related cost/benefit analyses to help the ownership team get the “right” project for them. The final design uses high impact yet cost effective solutions including a custom-made hand-crafted herringbone patterned ceramic tile and white marble front sales counter, emerald green velvet-look upholstery and brass back bar.

The project required careful management of pedestrian traffic and Olive + Oak patrons and included remove of a large section of the storefront to allow easier access and replacement of the concrete floor. Lawrence Group’s self-performance of the carpentry work provided cost, schedule and quality benefits.
