With El Poquito, the recently opened Mexican Cantina in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, Groundswell created a contemporary interpretation of a cozy, familiar and festive neighborhood restaurant using a variety of signature rustic and reclaimed materials. Touches of Groundswell’s trademark aesthetic at El Poquito are obvious inside and out. The cozy outdoor garden, dotted with lush plantings, rustic community tables and fire pits, is a popular gathering spot year-round. Inside El Poquito, reclaimed barnwood floors, rustic booths and artisan chandeliers all come together to create a fresh industrial space that is warm and inviting, while giving nod to the restaurant’s modern Mexican cuisine.
