SOLSTICE: A Story About Transitions (One Way 2.0s) @PowerPlantMall


SOLSTICE is a modern European restaurant by Joseph Assad of One Way Restaurant and Jackie Rodriguez, the innovator behind the Bistro Group (TGI Fridays, Italiannis) and Global Restaurant Concepts (CPK, IHOP). 

Its name is inspired by the astrological transitions that happen in June (summer solstice--the longest day of the year) and December (winter solstice--the shortest day of the year). This is why the Solstice restaurant concept is all about transitions.

First, both owners have moved on from their previous projects and invested on this homegrown 8 Rockwell restaurant. 

Second, the restaurant menu will start with One Way dishes and then evolve as they feature known chefs every three months, to showcase their cuisine for a week and leave a few recipes. 

Third, they will also feature Indian food on Mondays and Mediterranean cuisine on Tuesdays.

We tried Solstice a day after they opened the restaurant (during the winter solstice) and here's what we think about it...
