Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:57 am

Ryan Braun’s Waterfront restaurant has unveiled the plans for its first phase of construction for its new patio dining area.
The new plans will feature two horseshoe couches that add seating for 18, a bar that will consist of translucent, backlit panels, a concrete top and bamboo on the backside which will match the inside main bar. The patio will now seat 90 for lunch, dinner, happy hour or Sunday brunch.
“We knew we had a unique concept for the restaurant, and with the combination of the waterfront location and Ryan’s name, it was important for us to carry the uniqueness to our outdoor dining,” said Craig Martin, general manager. “We were fortunate to work with some of the best designers and contractors that allowed us to get the patio completed in time for the upcoming summer festivals.”
George Welsh of Welsh Construction and Wade Weissmann of Wade Weissmann Architecture were commissioned to build and design the area.
“When I was approached to work on this project, I knew we needed a designer that is an artistic thinker,” said Welsh. “Wade can visualize immediately what needs to be done and then he just starts drawing, sometimes on a notepad or a napkin – whatever is closest. That’s what happened with patio.”
Welsh and Weissmann’s, along with Peabody’s Interior Design, first assignment together was to design the interior of the restaurant, where they developed a lighter and brighter feel and a flow that worked for both guests and staff. “We created an atmosphere that appealed to women who like the clean, chic décor and men who like the fact its Ryan Braun’s restaurant with big screen televisions.” said Weissmann. “It’s not a sports bar by any means. We wanted guests to feel a touch of home, where they wanted to relax and enjoy themselves over a great meal.”
The second phase of the patio will consist of cabanas and a private area off of the VIP Lounge, and is expected to be completed by July.
