Project Summary: 

"Chow Mixed Grill and BBQ was created by the team from Serrano Brothers Catering. Head Catering Chef and Owner, Marco Serrano, started Serrano Brothers 5 years ago with the mission to bring multi-cultural, fresh, from-scratch dishes made from local, natural ingredients. He found over time that people were ready for a culinary change, and the idea for Chow was born."- Chow Mixed Grill & BBQ

Serrano Brothers Catering worked directly with Wilkus Architects to create the design behind the vision.  The result was a "rustic-modern", elevated approach to commercial design.  An 8,000 square foot facility with 3,000 square foot kitchen, two private dining rooms, private dining patio, large indoor dining space, impressive outdoor patio complete with fireplace, and a multi-functional bar that bridges the transition to the outdoors.  Add in a wood fire pizza oven surrounded by local craftsmanship for a truly unique, local destination for Elk River, MN.   

Wilkus Architects provided full-scope architectural services from concept design through construction administration.
