This project started with the name NX Restaurant but was renamed before opening to Saizon Restaurant located in The Row at Heritage Grove shopping center at Willows and Shepherd Avenues in NE Fresno. Billed as Napa Valley meets Mexico, it specializes in a contemporary American cuisine with Mexican influences and a distinct California point of view. However, the menu is not the only attraction to this popular restaurant. The ambience feels like you have been transported out of Fresno to a big city restaurant with an upscale feel yet maintaining incomparable hospitality that is the hallmark of Fresno.
The main contractor of the project was Fresno Sierra Contractors and the designated designer was Studio UN LTD. Because of their long history of exemplary installations and their proven ability to complete complicated design plans, Heritage Bomanite was chosen to install the decorative concrete flooring. Working closely with the designer and the owner, Bomanite Patène Artectura, part of the Bomanite Toppings Systems, was specifically selected to realize the vision of the design team.
Stained Concrete Creates Ocean Lapping Sandy Beach
The project was new construction of a new Restaurant. First, Heritage Bomanite had to grind and prime the area. Secondly, they installed Brass Terrazzo strips with incredible accuracy to make sure they looked like continuous lengths. Heritage Bomanite then installed the Bomanite Patène Artectura decorative concrete. Polishing was completed once an Artist had applied the concrete stain to create the ocean effect lapping on to a sandy beach. Finding the right level of shine and sand beach effect, using several applications of sealer, to the satisfaction of all project stakeholders, was one of the most difficult aspects of the project.
The use of custom colors by Heritage Bomanite, and an Artist working with concrete stain, has created a truly unique decorative concrete flooring that is exclusive to this restaurant. The bar area features the Artist’s concrete stain simulating the gentle motion of ocean waves washing over a sandy beach and generates an exceptional environment not often seen successfully created in concrete. The talented concrete craftmanship of the Heritage Bomanite crew allowed everything to seamlessly flow together.
