The first avocado restaurant in Prague, Avocado gang, was founded in a ground floor space of a street corner apartment building on Lyčkovo náměstí (Lyčka square) in Prague – Karlín. The simple longitudinal space of the restaurant offers a 9,3 m long table with 22 seats in the center and more seating along the walls. The open kitchen allows any of the customers to verify the freshness of their brunch. The multicolored center table is derived from the strong colorfulness of the avocado and the foods prepared from it. “Non-colors” on the scale of grey are a background for colorful objects – be it the table, chairs around it or – and this especially – the foods served here. The table is composed of spruce solid wood square timber in a 160 x 100 mm profile on legs from heat galvanized steel. Spruce is further present in the interior in the form of a glazed bio-board, the heat galvanized steel as bases for other tables, chairs or as lighting and veneer for the longitudinal wall separating the customer area and the restaurant’s facilities, as well as in the form of sinks and other elements. Everything is tied together by the cement floor finish and the light grey walls. However enough space is left for the avocado itself – whether you expect it in the form of guacamole or avocado pancakes with bacon.
