Sun-filled, inviting Mexican restaurant, serving plant based food & drinks. The space is nourishing and playful.
During construction at the original Chinatown location, the site revealed a historic mosaic floor from the early 1900s. This original penny tile mosaic is recreated in the new location and anchors the design. Clear Studios approaches renovating historic spaces with curiosity and openness - mindful of what is present.
The design draws eclectic global roots - expansive arches, patterned textiles, bright vibrant colors, & diverse textures. The ambiance is inviting and playful just like the Jajaja name. The integration of plant life brings a fresh natural energy to space.
