Houston restaurant Eunice merges Creole
influences with a modern European aesthetic

Gin Braverman

Founder and Creative Director
Gin Design Group
The past year has put work in perspective for Houston-based
designer Gin Braverman, who reflected upon the evolution of her
studio despite the ongoing pandemic. " We solidified what was
always there, " she says. " We're committed to creating projects that
don't shout to people that we designed them, but shout to people
the identity of the concept. "
Take Creole-inspired eatery Eunice. Braverman and her
team traveled with chef Drake Leonards to his hometown of
Eunice, Louisiana to explore the culinary scene in the bayou. The
resulting Houston restaurant pays homage to the historic eateries
that informed chef Leonards' own pedigree through a modern
European-style lens. " You see the influence of the backwoods
and the country, " Braverman says. " They blend seamlessly with
modern applications and the custom pieces we do-with a more
elegant and refined end result. "
Bespoke furniture is another hallmark of the practice, which
launched a procurement division in 2020. Creating her own
pieces allows Braverman even more input into the narratives
she weaves. " The magic's in the stories and the layers, " she adds.
Expect that thoughtful attention to detail to appear in a series of
ornate suites for Houston's forthcoming La Colombe d'Or hotel,
as well as the furniture and roof deck for the mixed-use food hall
POST HTX that's set to occupy a revamped downtown post office.
" Authenticity, integrity, originality: those are our three tenets, " she
says. " And being storytellers-that's first and foremost. " hd
The sun-filled Ginger Kale restaurant offers a natural, muted palette
to complement its views of Houston's McGovern Lake
