Sugo, known for its delicious European cuisine, is announcing the completion of a major interior renovation. The dining room now boasts new walls, banquettes, furniture, and designer light fixtures as well as a new Chef’s table, all carefully planned to enhance the restaurant’s romantic, upscale ambiance.

“More than just an aesthetic remodel, this has been a complete reworking of the restaurant for us. Our vision was thought out with AM2 Interiors over several months and directed towards improving guests’ experience and the overall restaurant flow,” said Federico Castellucci III, owner of Sugo.

AM2 Interior’s commitment to Sugo was to revive its atmosphere so as to create an environment that is as inviting and enhancing to the sensory palate as the food that is created there. With warm, modern accents combined with old world charm, the new Sugo now reflects the inviting atmosphere that it is so well known for.

Sugo will celebrate the renovation with a party on Sunday, July 28th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy complimentary small plates and sangria. A cash bar will also be available.
