- Jonathan Sin-jin Satayathum, an interior designer working with Chef Jonathan Sawyer on his new restaurant on E. 4th Street, The Greenhouse Tavern, emails that the design team is looking for vintage, used, or materials they can recycle for the interior space. "This produces less demand for new production, gives us opportunities to introduce unique character into the interior, and ideally should help us better control the construction budget." They're looking for chairs, table tops [no plastic laminates], table bases, butcher block tops/counters, prep tables, storage pieces, bar stools and old interior architectural pieces ?preferably that have a story attached. They're tapping Craigslist, Cleveland Freecycle and eBay Local, but want to expand their search for this, the 'first green restaurant in Ohio.'
