Shea partnered with restaurateur Ryan Burnet to open Eastside, an American brasserie in the Downtown East neighborhood of Minneapolis. From hiring a chef with ties to the neighborhood to featuring a menu of upscale, perfectly executed comfort food, a focus on home and locality was central to this project. Shea helped Burnet create a concept nestled on the first floor of luxury apartment building Latitude 45 that would be a go-to spot for neighborhood dwellers but is still special enough to warrant a trek across town. Shea collaborated on project naming, graphics, branding, and full interior design, creating an approachable dining and bar space that’s chic but still intimate.
