A whirlwind of activity at Crouch End has seen the start of our Tootoomoo restaurant transformation. This beloved venue is getting a face lift while heroically staying open (customers, we apologise!)
The artistic industrial grunge has had its time and served Tootomoo well, establishing the restaurant as a casual, fun, and friendly location to enjoy the fantastic Pan Asian food they are renowned for. Now we take a step towards a more polished, but equally as charming and eclectic, Tootoomoo vision.

The bright colour tones are to be pared back to rich reds, deep teals and warm walnut. Vibrancy is added with pattern tiles like the blue Vives Guell (tiles.ie) and the black and white Bertie tile (tons of tiles). For a touch of the bizarre we’ve switched up the angle of the tiles in the back nook, continuing them up the wall for full effect.
A few tweaks happening here to get it just right!
We’ve also brought the outdoors in and added extra contrast with bright, lush bamboo foliage and Madagascar palms behind the banquette seats.
Our materials are starting to shine through too with the brass table legs getting installed on site today! The white marble tops are to follow for the completed look in our Little T front bar area.
All coming together now.
We’re very much looking forward to seeing our work completed in the new year, and we hope you are too!
