30 Oct Tumbi Recognized in Michelin Guide’s California Discoveries
Congratulations to our client Tumbi for being recognized for their culinary talent. Tumbi has been distinguished as one of the select list of 25 restaurants in California considered as “Discoveries”. Michelin’s list of California Discoveries is meant to highlight “a snapshot of new and inspiring culinary talent across California”.
Akarstudios created for the owner RJ Singh the interior design, lighting design, graphics and signage program for the Santa Monica restaurant. Named after an Indian music instrument, Tumbi offers a contemporary take on Indian cuisine. Located in a historical building with tall ceilings, the restaurant resonates an urban look by leaving much of the original building exposed. A large mural adorns the main dining space, and wood-printed images of Indian streets act like a visual framework for this warm and atmospheric venue.
