The Whalesbone Bank (est 2005)

The Whalesbone Bank is the oldest of the 4 restaurants under the Whalebone banner in Ottawa.  This bank street restaurant is a small (30 seater), cozy, lively and rustic oyster house.  Alex Bimm took over the kitchen of this establishment and wanted to revamp the menu as well as the dinnerware.  Alex had a very precise idea of what he wanted: Clean lines, raw edges, simple tones as well as the Whalesbone logo on the sides of the bigger pieces.  We were commissioned to make snack plates, appetizer plates, dinner plates and shallow bowls.
