GOLDFINCH

Goldfinch Restaurant, along the Des Moines Court Avenue Entertainment District, is one of Des Moines’ largest downtown restaurants. To create a more intimate atmosphere and to visually lighten the space, a whitewashed perimeter envelops an amber wooden interior dining space. Booth seating along the interior adds an additional layer of private seating space as a counterpoint to the central dining zone. The large kitchen is open to the dining room to add another layer of activity and connection to the overall dining experience.
