WITH A DASH OF KORN ON THE SIDE.
Feast your eyes on our full course of tastes + tidbits, sushi + soufflés, lobster + libations.
We are grateful to have set the table, set the stage, and disrupted the culinary scene across the U.S. along side some of the most inspirational and hard working talent we know: foodies with big hearts and bold creativity, a dash of Korn and a lot of fun on the side.
1993 – 2017 – To Go Bakery, Hooch & Holly’s, Kid’s Can Cook, FLUX, MAX ULTIMATE FOOD
Dan Mathieu, the wildly creative mind behind so many magical culinary adventures, has worked with Korn since we first hung our shingle in 1992. The ToGo Bakery was one of our very first projects, followed by Hooch & Holly’s in Ogunquit, Maine (1997), FLUX in Boston’s South End (2002) and then the birth of MAX Ultimate Food (2001) that continues to thrive all over New England. Mix in Dan’s incredibly philanthropic dedication to community and Kid’s Can Cook (1997), shined brightly for young chefs across the city. View Project >
2005 – SUMMER SHACK
The vision was to reinvent New England’s beloved classic summertime seafood shack, capturing the essence of the quintessential roadside experience and making it available all year round. What’s not to love? We had a lot of fun working with the dream team behind Summer Shack, Patrick Lyons, entertainment + restaurant renegade and Chef Jasper White, acclaimed restaurateur and seafood expert. Now that’s a lobster . . . and it’s not even our favorite thing on the menu! View Project >
2010 – The Palm Restaurant Group
So the phone rings and it’s Bruce Bozzi, fourth generation of the family-owned and beloved Palm Restaurants. Did you know that The Palm was first opened on the East Side of Manhattan in 1921 by Italian immigrants from Parma? The legacy and history behind this storied family of restaurants is palpable. Bruce had called to talk to us about developing a new website for the company. Fast forward to 2010 Korn worked closely with Bruce and his entire team relaunch a complete brand refresh for The Palm Restaurant Group – across 25 restaurants in the U.S. and Mexico, to secure it’s place for generations to come.

2011 – DBGB + Daniel Boulud
Daniel had seen one of our new projects that had recently opened in Chicago an SRG restaurant called Mercat. That prompted him to call to ask if we’d be interested in collaborating with him on a new concept he was planning to open on the Bowery in Manhattan. We next found ourselves getting under the skin of what would become DBGB Kitchen + Bar. Daniel’s POV on a great neighborhood brasserie with a downtown twist included bangers and beer, a late-nite attitude for all of his friends to gather and of course adventures to follow . . .
