Balena, a joint venture between the Bristol team (Chicago gastropub, The Bristol) and the Boka Group (one of the premier chef driven restaurant groups in the country), opened this spring as one of Chicago’s hottest new restaurants.  Its glass facade, 28 foot cathedral ceiliings, and large arched glass windows create a greenhouse-like space.   Karen Herold, VP, 555 International, (a design, fabrication, and management firm) created a modern farmhouse feel, simple and rustic, elegant and refined.  Karen chose to use Aldo Bernardi lighting for Balena since both brands embody the soul, charm and bespoke characteristics of a true artisan, and both stand for authenticity, honesty, and excellence. Karen has specified Aldo Bernardi for other high-profile hospitality projects before. Our breadth and depth of styles, sizes and finishes meet her exacting needs, and our custom capabilities make almost anything possible.
