The Problem

Located on Mass Ave, Fat Dan’s is a Chicago-style deli known for their “smokin’ good Chicago comfort food and great craft beers and wines.” Their menu, complete with Italian Chicago Beef, Maxwell Street Polish, and Molten Cheeseburgers, is enough to make anyone’s mouth water.

The Solution

Fat Dan’s contacted Brick + Ember Outfitters in March with the intention of creating a brick wall in their restaurant similar to the famous ivy-covered brick wall in Wrigley outfield. We installed 176 square feet of Peppermill thin brick around an existing basketball backboard. The bricks were placed just above rows of beautifully-repurposed barn wood. Naturally, a Cubs flag flies at the top, pledging their allegiance to the Chicago team.

Patrons are now met with a stunning brick backdrop where they can “eat great food, drink great beer and juice, and have a ton of fun with family and friends.”
