Eloa by Cohen’s is a family-run restaurant in Vienna, Austria, specialising in Levantine cuisine, with a menu created by award-winning Israeli chef Imad Shurbaji. Located in the Quartier Belvedere development near Vienna’s Central Train Station, the restaurant caters primarily to businesses and commuters. The interior, designed by Tzou Lubroth Architekten, seeks to balance the aesthetics of the site, a grouping of stout cubic business towers, with the geographical origins of the cuisine, rooted in the Eastern Mediterranean. Industrial materials such as glass and metal are met by hand-glazed wall tiles and artisanal timber furniture.
The dining area is delineated by red wall tiles set in a herringbone pattern. Below, a wooden bench wraps around the room flanked by wooden tables and rows of oak Colombo Dining Chairs by Matthew Hilton. The combined bar area and open kitchen features green hand-glazed wall tiles with seating for guests in the form of Throne Bar Stool by Autoban in walnut and leather.
