West Bridge offers sophisticated French fare with the warmth of New England-inspired design. The 121-seat restaurant/bar boasts 18-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed concrete columns, blackened steel fixtures and reclaimed wood elements, infusing it with a rustic, loft-inspired feel. The 3,600 square feet space is framed with painted brick walls and dark honey reclaimed wood floors set at a 45-degree angle, a traditional element found in old factories. Guests enter through a steel and glass vestibule and are greeted by a comfortable lounge and 17-seat bar outfitted with a dark gray fire slate top, farm-wood face and white Thonet bentwood barstools. Custom light fixtures are draped with braided ropes, giving the room a unique look and warm glow.
