With its name derived from the historical architecture of the “Old City Hall” building, along with paying homage to the year the building was established, 1874, the split level venue will celebrate San Diego’s immense culinary and nightlife scene with a creative collaboration by celebrity Chef Richard Sweeney and San Diego’s premiere designer Michael Soriano.
San Diego’s culinary and social culture has evolved and with Florent, you’ll find an approachable elegance and a playful interior. From the mind of Michael Soriano, one can only imagine to experience the visually unexpected, with an organic and demure touch of glamour. “Design for me is about giving people the opportunity to reconnect to those good feelings, those good memories,” says Michael, and that sensibility will flow through the mindset of the Florent concept.
A culinary super star with a flare for the unexpected & fun, Emmy Award-winning hit reality competition show “Top Chef” contestant Richard Sweeney adds the Gaslamp Quarter to his growing culinary repertoire. Chef Sweeney will bring his light hearted, unique, and playful culinary style to the Florent menus that will feature local, sustainable and Modern American fare, complimented by an ambitious cocktail and local craft beer selection to reflect the San Diego culinary and social culture.
